you see what I did to be able to fit the gibson trussrod cover ? and yeah, it look so much better than the 3 screw epi .
Ya...Ohhhh. I thought his came with the two screw and he changed it to a three screw. It came with the 3 screw like ours and he changed it to the two screw with the smaller CUSTOM print. Got it....
It's $20 for just the Gibson Les Paul Custom truss rod cover, I think I am fine with ours the way it is. haha
What tuners did you put on it? Direct fit? You said no one would know when the originals go back on.......Yep, mine is in it's case in the closet. I don't mind the thicker neck, but I prefer the slim taper neck and since they did not make very many, mine is going to be mostly a collectors piece as well. Even though I changed the tuners, I have the originals to put back on and no will ever know I changed the tuners for a bit. Except of course MLP members for this thread and 20 years from now, no one will ever know this thread ever existed I am thinking. haha
Maybe Guitar Center had a bunch on backorder also because they have these in stock on their website.Did you have to make any modifiication to make that truss rod cover work?
The two-screw version looks MUCH better than that three-screw version.
I have a New one of these being delivered tomorrow. I had given up many months ago as they were sold out everywhere. Then my dealer called me Friday and said they received 52 that had been on backorder with Gibson. I told him to ship it to me. I started to get two -- one to sell and one to keep.
Holly shit!! that is a great looking guitar!! i've noticed they hold thier value. I see them on reverb all the time for 1400 clams!!!I received my new guitar, and it is beautiful. I got it from Sweetwater and I didn't have much time to play with it when it arrived today. The short amount of time I did get with it, is that it will still need new strings and a setup to my liking. It was just setup ok from Sweetwater. Although... it was on a truck all day out in the 90 degree weather. Maybe it just needs to settle down in normal temps for a day. I will mess with it more when I return on Saturday.
