One screw holding it on? So surely it spins 180 degrees tom?

Got mine too Snake. Absolute quality. Just have to wait for my 150 to arrive so I can fit it now.

I'm starting to think I'm just another sucker taken in by a Canadian EBay auction......

In any case, new Seymour Duncan SH-1 '59s are going into it.

I read elsehere on the forum that the one-screw trc is what the MIK models sold in Canada have....I sure don't like it though!

Sorry for the spew.

I have seen Gibsons and Epiphones with single screw TRCs. I'm not sure if the one on the Epiphone was after market, but I am fairly sure the Gibson wasn't. My advice would be to take the cover off and have a looksee if you have any other holes or space that's being covered up.

Yeh Deadman, I will def be ordering from that seller again, I got a pick guard from them too. They have a nice set of stuff there.

Nope, no other holes.
Perhaps a LP Custom-style (three screws) would be a good replacement...it would mean drilling, but an improvement I think.

If there is any space for a single screw in the centre? If you can take a measurement of the cover from the centre of the hole to the bottom of the cover, as well as a measure of the overall length of the cover.

I can measure the same distances on my Gibson (2 hole) style cover, and an Epiphone (3 hole) cover, if you don't have access to them.

Anyway, I personally think that, if you CAN fit it, 2 screw covers simply look nicer than 3 screw covers. They alter the shape to fit the extra screw on, it's just a little thing I guess, but I really preffer the 2 screw ones.

Interesting. Do the ones that don't fit have the correct headstock and the ones that do fit have the dimple?

I'm thinking domestic market vs rest of world. Maybe there was a demand to make retrofitting possible in Europe.

Or perhaps Snake bought an older secondhand model - I don't think he said.

Paladin, the ones from Japan do not fit bell TRCs well.You have to angle the screws a little and then you got it....

The MIK models sold out of Canada have a SMALL triangular trc, with a screw ONLY at the top. A screw cannot be placed at the bottom, as the truss-rod opening is flush with the bottom of the nut.

That is why I was pondering one of the three-screw triangular trc (in one of the LP Custom styles) might be a good replacement. Since mine is a LoveRock "Standard", I'd like that engraved as well.....

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.



So they want to be like Gibby????

that will probably bring in more lawsuits that i hate.....
I suppose the beel does look good, but if i asked my technology teacher i could make a custom one that would look great, but not so vintage

They'd give you the option of looking like gibby. No lawsuit danger there.

It's a good mod because it fixes the love rock's only real cosmetic flaw and wouldn't affect resale value - people would regard the bell as being more favourable that the elipse.
