    Good luck man, I mean that. Just call Gibson again and tell them you ARE the original owner and you want your stuff they promised you:fingersx:

    Just got word back again from Gibson Customer service and after asking for the original purchasers info to check if a kit was ever sent, he now claims they can't track the info anymore.

    I should have just lied and pretended I was the original buyer like you guys said - being honest got me nowhere...

    Anybody have another contact other than Daryl Mosley from their customer service team?

    Does anyone know if it is possible to buy the "Slash" truss rod cover anywhere?

    I've never seen one like the original - but there is a guy on ebay (aladdinsane83) from Germany that makes some out of aluminum and brass. I bought a couple of his other styles (Epi logo and carved out Gibson logo) for my MIK Epi - they are a bit pricey, but very nice pieces :)


    Gibson USA fluffed me off to their Canadian distributer (which I knew where that was going to go) and the Canadain distributer said they can't do anything for me since it was purchased in the US. Sounds like I'm not going to get anywhere with them, but I'll keep bugging. I find it pretty bad that they admit they have no record of sending one to the original owner, and still refuse to do so despite their offer of a "free" package. Oh well, one will turn up sooner or later :)

    What the hell ever made him think he looks good with his shirt unbuttoned?

    Well, after a fair amount of persistence, Gibson finally agreed to send a kit out to the original owner. As long as he doesn't shaft me (I gave him a heads up), I should be getting the kit in the near future.

    Hehehe, at least it shows if you keep at it, eventually they'll give in. Glad you're finally getting it.

    I don't think so. I've seen the actual strap in GC and it's much nicer than any of the other studded leather straps they have. I would love to have one of them but I'm not interested in buying the guitar to get it. So I keep looking for one on ebay.

    They're already out!
    They're called Gitanes Brunes :slash:

    Obviously they're not his signature cigarettes, but i think that Gitanes is his preferred brand of Cigarettes nowadays. I have at least seen him with that same cigarette package many times.

    Well... after all that, I get this email today:

    I had tried registering when I first bought the guitar, but never got anything. Due to the trouble I was having getting one sent to the original owner, I tried registering a second time a week or two before they finally agreed to send a package to the original owner. Looks like that second registration actually went through and I'm going to end up with a second kit! LOL Long story short - Epiphone doesn't keep records worth a damn for these kits. If your registration doesn't go through the first time, just keep trying :)

    Here is the official custom made strap that Slash uses. It is both badass and comfortable. Red Monkey
