Is there anyway to acquire SG Stamped Truss Rod Covers, for the SG Std. Basses from Gibson? Why was the production of the SG Stamped Truss Rod Covers stopped? It just looks bit classy on a $1300.00 Gibson. You sure pander enough to Les Paul guitars, for parts.

If nothing else buy a 2 ply cover and have it engraved. I would guess Gibson might be the only source, you could get an SG guitar truss rod cover for it.
I THINK they are the same size, but you may want to be sure.
I would email Gibson and see what they say.

Would an Epiphone SG truss rod cover like the one in the link fit?

Here's another, but a bit pricey:

Those are different than the Gibson cover. Gibson has 2 screw holes, and the lower screw has a little "tab" that the screw goes through
and the bottom is not flat like the Epi cover.

Are the covers different on a 6 string compared to the Bass? Being new to all of this, I had no idea of the differences. Seemed that they were using 3 screws on the guitars I saw being manufactured when I toured the Memphis factory. Of course they don't make SG's there.

All of the Gibson's I have ever owned had 2 screws.
Here is the cover on my 1978 Melody maker.
It's 2 3/8 inches tall and 1 1/8 inch wide at the bottom of the bell.

The Epi SG has three mounting screws, and the Gibson SG has two.

The original SG cover is a 2 ply. White bottom, Black top. because then, I think they just etched, or laser cut out the SG lettering through the top black coat.
