A Couple SG Special Customization Questions


Spike~

Recommended Posts

Hi, I come here with this question because I have had no luck with all the searching i've been doing. I want to have a backplate on my Special like the Translucent Smoked Acrylic plate on the Robot Guitar, and I am also looking for a Truss Rod cover in either the "SG" Style or "The SG" style. A few images of what i'm looking for...

These are the 4 styles that Gibson 'officialy' makes and sells.

However as you can see, they dont make any for the SG. What i'm looking for is one of these;

No luck, they have Truss Rod covers, but they're just the 4 that Gibson still sells. Which is another problem, I'm fairly certain that (The "SG") plate is/was made by Gibson but i'm not 100%. So I don't even know if it was a cover they actually manufactured or not. I have only seen a couple SG's with that truss cover.

those truss rod covers that gibson are still manufacturing are another example of gibson giving too much power to the les paul and not giving a rat's *** about the sg...but to answer your question i think ebay would be your best bet

 

Well, kinda but not entirely. There's a 'Les Paul' and a 'Les Paul Custom' truss rod for sure, but they also still sell the 'Standard' one. Since I have a special that wouldnt be approiate :^o Don't see how it woulda been that hard for them to make an "SG" one since that would cover all of them, or one that just says 'Special'.
