Truss Rod Cover • Vintage Style for Gibson USA Models • NOS or LIX Patina
The truss rod covers for Gibson USA models are a bit larger than their Historic covers. And while the wide-routered edge of the vintage-style covers looks fantastic on the USA guitars, it's not uncommon for the stock covers to leave an outline in the finish on the headstock that Historic covers are not large enough to hide. We've encountered this issue often in our shop while fitting a Historic cover to a production Les Paul, and we think you'll agree we've come up with the perfect solution!
We took the correct shape and dimensions of the original covers from the 50s and enlarged their width just enough to fully cover any footprint left by the stock Gibson USA cover. The result is a gorgeous piece that will instantly give your guitar an old-school look. The last photo shows the three Gibson covers mentioned alongside ours for your comparison.
Available in NOS (new old stock) or aged LIX Patina.LIX is the Roman numeral for 59. CreamTone aged parts have the look of well-worn pieces from that era. Please make your selection from the menu at the top of this description.
