Just a quick question guys:

Cheers.

Gibson truss rod covers won't fit modern tokais unless you fill and re-drill one of the holes.

I was thinking about this recently. I thought about shaping my own truss rod cover. I'm in the process of making a custom pick guard for a strat style guitar, although it will have to be more fiddley than that, has to be worth a try..?

Interesting, Snake. Good luck with it.

Oh and thanks Ganzua, don't fancy drilling holes in my prospective LS150 though!!!

Yes, it will fit on a Japanese two screw one. I put a genuine Gibson bell shaped one on my Love Rock Junior.

So, do they fit ok? Did you have problems with the metric screws?

Why would you have problems? You'd just re-use the orignial ones.

It seems Tokai have changed their TRC dimensions recently because the bell didn't fit my '01 love rock. Had to have one made for me.

As Paladin says' just use the original screws.......... and to be honest' they look a lot better than the gibson one's supplied! (smaller)
But yeah' the holes line up exactly.

That's great if you can fit Gibson truss rod covers to modern Tokais, I read that the vintage ones where the same height, but at some point they changed it.. According to someone on ebay selling Les Paul TRCs, a Gibson cover is 6 cm from end to end, and 5.2 cm from hole to hole. I'll have to check the hole to hole dimentions of my tokai when I get home, but if anyone has the information to hand that'd be cools.

Ok thank you luis.

I'm actually pleased that I missed the Standard one.

I just fancy a black one now.

I've put several Gibson truss covers on my Tokais. It is not an exact fit. You have to make another hole for it to fit. It has been this way on my LS-200 and LS-320 from about 2001.
