Maybe you guys get a kick out of this "exchange". No word yet on a truss rod cover. Dan, there isn't a round, silver "D" on your shop floor is there?

Dear some-parts,

 

Hello. I've been asking around to the Guild/DeArmond parts suppliers, for a "new" truss rod cover; for a DeArmond Sevenstar that I've modded in to a 7-string "Thunderbird". Replete with with DiMarzio Crunch Lab 7 and Liquifire 7 pups (4-conductor pups to replace the 2-conductor DeArmond, Guild, Fender??? pickups), new Hagstrom Tremar, routing/installation for the 3-switch cluster, and phase switch.

Pictures can be seen at our band's website (www.phfobe.com go to photos, click on "One-of-a-kind 7-stein"), or the Offset Guitar forum; New & Reissue; DeArmond Jetstar "string'.

 

This formidable axe DESERVES a new designation. With DeArmond and Guild out of business, there is no one to appeal my case to. I have chosen the name DARK STAR to adorn this glorious remod. I am looking for someone to create a Guild truss rod cover with the Guild logo on top, and the name DARK STAR, where it would be placed like the Jet Star covers are. I do believe they capitalize everything.

 

Can you guys do it?

Dark Star was already used by DeArmond/Guild for their "flagship" bass. Okeh, in that event I choose the name DARK NOVA, as novas are star who have lost their shell/minds? (Do stars THINK?)

We picked Axcaliber. Hope it fits on the truss Rod cover!!

Dark Star was already used on a Guild bass, so that wass out. I liked Dark Nova for a long time but it just doesn't do it like, AXCALIBER! Leave a message this is a guestbook although my blogs rock
