    I am designing a head stock badge for my 5420T and I like to size of the badge on the Brian Setzer Hot Rod models. If someone can measure it for me that would be amazing! Also the thickness. I plan on taking my custom artwork and logo to a trophy shop to get it made. Also if anyone can take a closeup pic of it that would be cool. Thanks!

    ^Agreed 1" x 1.25". Screw holes spaced 0.795" x 1.00".
    My Hot Rod sits about 1 metre away from me here, measured with electronic verniers.

    Just a heads up ....... I once took a " truss rod cover " to my local trophy shop to be engraved also . Good thing I gave him 3 covers to work with as he burned right through the first 2 . He said he was using some type of " laser burner / engraver " . Just wanted to give you a head up . Here's the cover , but it was a little too big for my liking . I wanted more of a ( Gibson ) 335 size . ( BTW - sold the guitar ) IMG_0006.JPG
