Weird and not very important question, I know. Well, here goes, I’ve noticed Gibson’s current truss rod cover has the white beveled edge, did Gibson ever use all black on their LPs or SGs when they came out? I’ve been eyeing up SGs and noticed one of my favorite players Duane Allman has an all black truss rod cover, and compared to his LPs which he modified it seems his SG is stock(save for the tuners and hard tail swap done by Dickey prior to selling it to Duane). I’ve noticed Dickey’s SG with it too, maybe because it’s his model based off the one sold to Duane? And of course, another favorite, Derek Trucks seems to have an all black truss cover on his current guitar, I think a 61 reissue. Did Gibson ever have guitars with all black covers or just a personal preference of those associated with the Allman’s? Also, bonus points for if anyone knows why Duane curled his strings rather than cut them? Perhaps more string tension in the pole, or just another personal touch?
