Custom truss rod cover

Happy new year, folks!

My pink RG project is slowly progressing and the only thing that's missing is a truss rod cover. Since this is a build in honor of my soon-to-be-born daughter (only a month left now, woohoo) I'm gonna go for a truss rod cover with her name on.

Who does offer custom engraved truss rod covers for Ibanez guitars? Been looking at the 'bay, but haven't found any.

Re: Custom truss rod cover
Al is great! He also does Ibanez truss covers in a bunch of colors--visit his store.
Option #2:
Get this one, then get some white "press and peel" letters small enough to spell her name on the cover. Then lightly spray over the letters with a matte clear to seal/protect.

Re: Custom truss rod cover

you can cut it yourself from clear lexan available at lowes. make the graphic you want on your pc. print it and lay it UNDER the clear cover. it will be shiny forever

Re: Custom truss rod cover

I bought a couple for the jem and Rg but they were too thick
you had to raise the string tree to install, so I removed them
but it's not like they cost alot so try a few
they might work for you
