There is a reason for purchasing this item, which is, some of the truss rod covers are distracting, and does nothing for the overall appearance of the guitar. Also, if you do modifications to an instrument that has this type of standard truss rod cover, the description on the "factory" cover is no longer correct. Generally, a modification is an upgrade of the instrument, so get rid of the lesser description on the truss rod cover. Then, there is the reason that would count the most, the original is broken, and needs to be replaced. This would come with pride of ownership, which can be greatly misunderstood.
Fits right neatly on my Gibson Explorer! Thanks StewMac for carrying so much at such great price!
Perfect fit on my old Gibson LGO.
Poor quality. Save money, buy the original.
This finished off my last guitar very well. I trimmed up the end near the nut, and drilled holes on the otuside edges. Looks great!
Not as nice as original,but close
They do the job, just wish there was more variety and that they included screws.
The part measures right, but is a little bit rough, it requires finishing (light sanding) to look perfect. The edges are sharp, while Gibson's cover is all rounded and smooth. But for the price, this cap is excellent and has the same glossy black surface as the original. You can easily work this item into a classic looking one.
Purchased this and another style for comparison. This one (#0614) didn't compliment my design but is still a quality piece.
It's a truss rod cover, and as such, works extremely well, after I cut off the Gibson style lower mounting hole. It did have a new shine about it, but that went with application off 0000 steel wool. Adds to the reliced headstock on a Precision Guitar Kits neck/body.
