Where to buy 540PII back cover?

I just bought a 540PII but it is missing both back covers and the truss rod one. I know the trem cover is easy to get but where could i get the whole set at once? Is there anybody on here that could do a set or know of anyone?

Thanks,

Chris

Re: Where to buy 540PII back cover?

I think the truss cover and back trem cover would be easy to get...they should be the same size as other ibanez guitars. The other back control cover will be tough as i suspect it is specific to that guitar.

I've had some custom pickguards cut by WD in the past. http://www.wdmusic.com/pickguards.html. They do a really nice job and you can pick whatever color you want. Call them up and they'll talk you through the process. Basically you'll want to trace on paper EXACTLY what you want them to cut and mail it to them. They'll make a template from that drawing and cut your pickguard. When I did it they told me they hold on to the template, which is nice in case down the road you need another one you don't have to pay for them to make the template again...you'll just have to pay for the guard. Prices may have changed but i think i paid about 20 bucks for the template and about the same for each guard. It's a bit pricey but not unreasonable, and in a unique situation like yours it may be the only option unless you get really lucky and find an original.

Congrats on the purchase. I'm jealous.

Thanks man, i`ll go and take a look at the site and maybe they already have one on file.

I ordered a set for my Les Paul last week, i just thought about it right now????(Dumb a**)LOL @ me that is... Terrapin Guitars, they do awesome work, but a bit pricey also but the results are great. I was trying to find a complete set of plastics for the LP in white. Could not find any, so i had them made. While at it i ordered a pearloid set also, back covers too.

Again, thank you for the link.

Chris
