    Hi there!

    I've literally bought all types of Les Paul cream output jack plates i could find on Amazon UK and none seems to fit on my Navigator N-LP-380LTD.
    The screw holes do not fit. The ones i bought seem like they are using a smaller square than on the Navigator.
    Any ideas what part should i be looking for or is there a source for Japanese parts, or is there someone here that has a spare one to sell? Would other Jap brands suck as Tokai, Burny, Greco output jack plates fit?
    I really would like to fix this as it is cracked in 3 places.

    Thanks in advance.
    Tio

    Not sure about the PCD on the Navigator plate, but I recently bought a jack plate from Axetec.co.uk, for my Burny RLG50, was a perfect fit.

    I have had 2 Allparts plates and both snapped in half while being mounted. I even used my heat gun on the second attempt.
    Also the Allparts plate is sized for US guitars... the holes will be small, and may not line up.
    Good luck.

    Wrong, Tokai use AllParts who sourced the part from Gotoh so metric. And yes, I have a snapped neck ring from my Tokai LS-70 2001 made. I have bougth a set different that Tokai ones recently.
    They could order US size rings also.

    luis,
    Interesting...the ones I had were about 6 years ago, maybe they've changed. They did however fit a USA Gibson.

    I thought the hole spacings were 25 mm, which is close enough to the 1-inch standard size (25.4 mm?) so that most plates would fit.
    I see some e-bay plates with 23.4 mm spacing which is too small.

    I let my LS70 ring to a friend to put in a 90s Gibson standard and fitted as noticed above.

    I got a Gibson Historic, Allparts and i got the Axetec as suggested and they don't fit.
    The holes for the screw are closer than on the Nav so you can mount them. Need a bigger square plate.

    Get some ABS Plastic Sheet, measure up where your holes are from each other, their size, as well as the the jack hole size. draw up a template, then cut it to size. Bend it slightly, going back and forth until it fits the curve perfectly.
