Because these are engraved into the white layer, off-angle viewing can sometimes be very hard to read. Color filling the engraving will greatly enhance the readability of the text. Let me know if you prefer the text to be color filled in white by adding a note in the special instructions area.

    Finishing Touch

    Posted by Robert Robinson on Apr 25, 2024

    When recently revamping my old Gibson Melody Maker I wanted to replace the original plain truss rod cover with a newer one. This one not only was what I was looking for but was also a way to personalize my guitar. It exceeded all my expectations as far as quality and how precise the engraving is. With all the choices of fonts ,lettering etc. it was the finishing touch my old guitar needed. I am thrilled !

    Great product!

    I have no idea how it compares to a Gibson Historic or a real vintage Gibson truss rod cover, but it looks great on my 2016 Les Paul Traditional! The shape and the bevel are very different from Gibson USA covers. I really dig it.

    The Good Stuff

    Philadelphia Luthier Tools' customizable truss rod covers are top notch. They look great and fit as they should. This "historic" cover has the nice thick white band - love it!
