I know there's a lot of S-series gurus on here. Has anyone ever found replacement covers for the 5-way switch that weren't the standard black plastic? It looks like Rich has the standard ones. I'm rebuilding one that was stripped down to natural mahogany, so was hoping to find either a cosmo or even better a mahogany one.

I may wind up trying to carve one out myself from mahogany, but thought I'd ask first. Thanks!

Only the black plastic version exists,you will have to carve one your self or paint the plastic version. Keep in mind (if shaping one from wood),it doesn't have to be a dome shape on the face it can be a flat face. Originally they were the same shape as now but just cut out of plexi,like a scratch plate.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Corey. When I bought this guitar, it had been sorta cobbled together, so the one on it was just cut out too. I didn't like that, but the other hardware/electronics were worth more than the guy sold it for. I'll just have to carve it out then.
