We are now offering a set of gauged nut/bridge files made specifically for violins.  These come from the same manufacturer (HOSCO) as the other nut file sets that we sell.  The sizes are .020″, .026″, 032″ and .040″.  You can roll the file slightly when making a slot to produce in between sizes. These are an edge cutting file that will produce a rounded bottom slot.

05. October 2012 · Comments Off on Added new Gibson Truss Rod Covers screws · Categories: New products

Currently if you need a replacement truss rod cover screw for a Gibson guitar your only solution was to buy a new genuine Gibson truss rod cover. As a repair shop, these small screws always end up missing during a truss rod adjustment.

We have searched all over for a supplier of nickel and gold #3 x 1/4″ without any luck. Apparently the size isn’t commonly used by anyone but Gibson. The only solution was to have the screws custom ordered and plated for us. We also had them produce other screws, bolts and nuts. Please check www.philadelphialuthiertools.com under the screws & nuts category for our new offerings.

11. September 2012 · Comments Off on New custom guitar parts…full color truss rod cover, switch rings and pickguards!! · Categories: New products

One of the most popular items that we sell is our custom engraved truss rod covers. We color fill the engraving which allows for a more detailed engraving. A frequently asked question is if we can produce images instead of text. Engraved images do work but we need vector images (not jpg) and you are limited to just one color (white). If you are interested in this service, you need to contact us directly. We sometimes require an additional fee for the labor involved.

We are now ready to launch a new product that allows us to reproduce a color image that you provide. These images can be a photograph, Google\Bing\Yahoo images, band logos or something you have created. This image can then be applied to a truss rod cover, switch ring, back plate, pickguard, etc. We are going to start with basic Gibson items first. Please check back to be the first with some truly unique and custom items for your guitar!

27. February 2012 · Comments Off on NEW Custom Engraved Truss Rod Covers for Ibanez and Guild guitars · Categories: New products · Tags: , , ,

We recently added 3 new truss rod covers to our custom engraved TRC inventory.

We have two Ibanez truss rod covers that are exactly the same shape but have different bottom mounting hole locations. The DM-911-IBZ1 is for guitars without the Access truss rod cover; The DM-912-IBZ2 is the one with the Access truss rod cover. The Access truss rod covers have the little door that opens and allows for easy access for truss rod adjustments. Of course with the custom engraved truss rod cover you will lose this ability…I don’t think that is a big deal for an awesome TRC! If you are ordering either one of these please check the measurement closely to ensure you get the correct truss rod cover.

We also have added a Guild custom engraved truss rod cover. They remind me of an upside down Gibson TRC. These have special rounded edges and are only 1mm thick on black TRC material.  This is a very easy way to add a little customization to your favorite guitar.
