Howdy! So, I finally have a left-handed Westone Thunder 1A again (via a Facebook group for Matsumoku guitars) after my first one was stolen seven years ago (and I spent nearly a decade looking for that one), and I am so stoked to be able to play one again! That said, it's missing a couple of things. Namely, the truss rod cover and the original pickup rings. The seller is providing all of the original hardware that they have, but I may or may not need a couple of other items as well.

For the pickup rings I was just planning on picking up some generic black plastic ones, but does anyone know of a particular brand/make that will fit best?

For the truss rod cover I would prefer a left-handed 1A cover (flipped script), but would also be fine with a right-handed cover if a lefty isn't available.

Thanks for looking!

I have some replacement TRCs here, but you'd have to get it engraved as they are blank. 
I'll check to see what I've got a little later on and let you know....

John, you need an eye test. They're not blank, just a bit hard to see. They are matt black with the model name in gloss black - that's just how they came out of the molds, I didn't have the tools or equipment to do white on black.

Ah, so I could just paint over the lettering in white then.

Eh, I mean I'll take it if nothing else! How much would you like for one?

On the subject of pickup rings, does anyone have the dimensions, or know the mounting screw spacings? Still awaiting arrival of my guitar, otherwise I'd just measure those.
