So I've used the search function and found a bunch of people making these .. but these were all fairly dated threads.

So does anybody make them currently worth a mention?

Id like one with both of my children names on the cover in a sort of calligraphic font in mother of pearl (or whatever the Fret inlay material is - not abalone, the other one).

Thank you in advance!

I used these folks and they did a great job on mine. I didn't realize until after I ordered it that there are two sizes - one for core models and one for SE's.

@Daniel9789 Do make sure you measure your current trussrod cover.
I ordered an SE one from Phila Luthier, but discovered the hard way that my new 2021 SE Zach Myers made in Indonesia has a shorter cover - more like the cores than the Korean SEs.
So take their "fits SE" or whatever and verify with a ruler before ordering.

+1 for https://reverb.com/shop/silkes-gear-garage I used to use WEC inlays but find Rockdogs Custom Guitars and stuff covers a higher quality and generally cheap all my PRSi have his covers, as well a few of other guitars. Silkes a great guy and if it can put on a cover he'll find a way to do it.

Here the SE's with Rockdogs TRC's

This may not be the best thread to ask this but does anyone know where I can get just an identical stock replacement truss rod cover for a custom 24 SE? The problem in my search is that the cover itself has the word “custom” on it, so naturally search results all yield nothing but custom designed covers.

There should be all sorts of blank ones floating around reverb.com. Thats where I usually find mine.

Saw those and appreciated, however those are blank black, and the one that came stock on my guitar actually has the word “Custom” on the front. Hence the issue with doing any text based search for a truss rod cover with my models name (Custom 24 SE) in it. All I get are results for custom MADE covers. I am looking for the exact match stock cover reading “custom”, not a custom made cover or a blank black one. At this point I’m starting to think the only place another can be found is on another import Custom 24 SE.
