Cheap Nice Wood Custom Pickguard & Truss Rod Cover.



How to Make Your Nice in Real Wood Custom Pickguard & Truss Rod/pots/switch Covers, according to your taste & Guitar Color Style,

Almost for nothing ?



Here's the sample of the Color & Wood type you could found:



Society who install Hardwood Flooring, always have some "little" cutted parts of the wood useless for them after every installation, just kindly ask.


Gibson Style Bell Shaped Truss Rod Cover - 'Les Paul' Oak:






In real it looks better Tru-oil finished & polished.

I've photoshoped the LP headstock logo as i wanted a very thin font.

It's not a decal, it's direct printed on wood (with the help of a printer cd tray).



how to: Once you've got your wood Cut your piece larger than your Pickguard or Truss Rod Cover).

cut it by half (to make it thinner), sandpaper (on a table, the floor or a flat surface) the invisible side to make it flat.


Cut* at the shape of your old plastic Pickguard & Truss Rod Cover tracing on the wood with the old as model (or make a different one).


*I've use a dremel with the little sanding drum & a very little flat files around the screw & the 2 ears.


Finish by hand sanding (this will bevel the external shape).


Now you've got a very nice Pickguard & Truss Rod Cover for nothing & scratch resistant as most of them are factory treated with one kind of very resistant & invisible resin.


Won't work for Large Pickguards without gluing 2 pieces (such as Stratocaster).


Could also be a good support for real inlay practicing.
