You can get covers at GC or off the net around 12 bucks each. I removed the covers from my standard and put them on the faded, they definitely add some class. :coolsmiley:

I have covers on my faded too and agree they do dress them up a bit.

Thanks guys, I was just trolling GC's website, found and ordered a set of humbucker covers in nickle, then I threw 3 sets of these Classic Ernie Ball Regular Slinky's onto the order so I could get free shipping.... ;)

Guess I'll have to take more photo's when I get the covers on.....(sounds like a reasonable excuse).... O0

I'll have to give their website a trolling as well Six String, the fact that I have a GC Preferred Customer card kind makes it easier to order through them. As a matter of fact I was toying with the idea of ordering a set of those Ernie ball strap locks, I'll look on Sweetwater's site first..... O0

Got the nickle covers for my Faded's humbuckers today, certainly gives this SG a new look.....

Good luck on the "SG" Truss rod cover, have yet to find those. Except the occasional knock off on ebay, or the way overpriced take off original. Don't know why you can get blank, custom and Les Paul stock TRC's but no SG ones.

I like the blanks. That's how they all used to look.

I'm certainly not going to pull any hair out looking for one, but if I do stumble across one in a music shop or on eBay, I'll take a stab at acquiring it for my Faded......

Seriously, I have one. I prefer the blank ones. Send me your address and we can switch.
