Tiny Lids, Scratch Plates, and Other Random Stuff!

Well… it’s been an interesting month to say the least...

Not for the first time, I’ve been presented with a common problem for many players I like to term “Lost Lid Syndrome”. The main symptom of LLS is the chronic loss of any and all plastic bits and pieces - knobs, lids, battery pack and truss rod covers, scratch plates, the list goes on, but you name it and I've lost it - from your guitars, basses, pedals, even your own sanity… At one point or another we have all been afflicted by this relentlessly inconvenient malady.

What can be done you ask?

Majority of the time there are simply no aftermarket replacement parts available for discontinued pedals or instruments so you can either suffer in your jocks or come see me – someone who has learned to create bespoke parts to fill those tiny little voids left in your life by the offending article. For the void left in your heart by your ex, well, that is definitely beyond repair.

Here are just a handful of examples of the fun and games I’ve had measuring, cutting, filing, sanding, razoring, and cursing my way through new lids and scratch plates this month!

My favourite being the Warwick truss rod access lid I hand crafted to snugly click into place of the original lid. Easily removed with a small flat head screwdriver, I trust this small and precise work will restore some sanity to the user.

Till next time stay safe and riff hard
