I've found a couple of places on the net where I can get a replacment pickguard- only thing is I'll lose the direction arrow....and I like that feature


Is there anywhere in Dublin that would print/engrave a small job like this?

While I'm at it I'll get "Marauder" written on the truss rod cover


It would probably be wrong to put a Gibson logo on the headstock though

That'd be perfect!! I found a place in Maynooth that would do it but all the better if you could do it!

I also want the word "Marauder" to fit on the truss rod cover like so..



I've ordered one and will measure it once it arrives


I'll see if I can post a pic of the scratch plate

ha, holy crap. out of a skip. that's deadly. what does it play like? the epiphone dot studio i was given by our caretaker is the easiest guitar i have to play, it is a dream. And i have no qualms about dinging it off door frames cause it is been well dinged already.

It needs a little more work. The replica neck isn't the best -might be just a case of adjusting the truss rod a little more, and the electrics aren't 100%. Moose is going to have a look for me so fingers crossed.

ha. fuck -I didn't realise. I got it 90% of the way there, put it in the wardrobe to come back to later and pretty much forgot about it until that other thread today.
