    Anyone know of a good place to get a new jackplate to replace the one on my 01 R8?

    Mike60, I like the look of the RS one, but $30 is a little steep for me. I like the gibson stock ones, but can't seem to find them.

    Murkat, I havent broken it, although I do have a chrome one from a 90s standard Im actually thinking about putting on. Honestly, it is for cosmetic reasons, I like the look of the thinner jackplates.

    ...you will have a hard time finding the Gibson stock Hist. plate unless a Gibson dealer happens to have one or they occassionally show up on fleabay...
