    Home Depot should have what I need.. pics n post tomorrow...
    Any yous guys have or seen one?
    Or will I be the first with this amazing custom Epiphany??

    I had this made at a local trophy shop years ago . A little large for my liking ( I was hoping for more for the size of a Gibson 335 ) Just wanted to share and give you some idea's

    I made a custom silver truss rod cover for my 5620:

    I had the logo reverse-engraved on a piece of clear acrylic ordered from ponoko.com. I filled in the engraving with white acrylic paint, and then painted the back with silver spraypaint.

    I’ve been thinking, why not glass inlays and porcelain pickguards?

    If I did another Warmoth build I would want an abstract glass jewel, like a marble, inlayed in the headstock instead of a logo.

    A porcelain pickguard would probably crack pretty easily, but it would sure look good.

    Looks as thought you installed your custom cover atop your stock one?

    Yep! I liked the three-ply look, so I left the original cover on.
