where di dyou get teh head truss rod cover G5120?
I had purchased a few ( 4 ) blank truss rod covers and brought them to a local trophy shop . Good thing I had 4 . He had a machine that would burn in the numbers and it took him a few times as he burned right through a few before the 4th one ....... but theres a few places if you search the net that sell some custom ones that are pretty cool . I actually was a little disapointed in the size of the numbers as i wanted more like a Gibson " 335 " size . Heres a few links for ya ......

May I ask, how do you like the TV Jones Classics? I just bought a G5120, 2006 model but it had never been setup, it still had the packing foam under the bridge. I have had it set up and she is sweet to play. I would like to get more of the "Rockabilly" sound. What would you say?

I’ve had several custom truss rod covers cut and engraved at a local trophy shop. I simply brought my original in as a pattern, chose the color(s) of material, and the font and design I wanted. Came back the following week and paid about $14-$15 each. Here’s one I had made for Joan, my Double Jet:
