    Since you gear freaks clearly have an obsession with guitar stuff....which is nothing I know anything about ;) ....

    Where can one go to find a PRS SE friendly truss rod cover? Something different than the standard black plastic, I mean?

    My C.R. SE needs some love and attention, and a nice TRC is on my list of desired upgrades.

    I have a Core nut, ready for install...and Mann tuners to be ordered shortly...but where can I find something saucy for the truss rod blanket?

    OK, off-the-wall question:

    In the link Peet provided, the TRCs come with sizing options based on brand, but also two option for PRS because:

    "In 2014 Paul Reed Smith changed the size of their truss rod covers."

    Is that true? I have not noticed - now I need to go measure/compare an older and newer core model.

    Also, that site doesn't offer up SE model TRCs, which is unfortunate.

    OK, so in reaction to my query above, I did a couple quick measurements using digital calipers:

    My 2015 P245SH and my 2011 305 have the exact same distance from TRC screw (center) to back of nut: 1.70". As do my older SAS, and the S2 RL Vela SH from last year (2017).

    The SEs all measured 1.80", except the MM baritone which was 1.79" - hardly worth worrying about.

    Perhaps the website has confused SE TRCs as being "newer" or "older" than the core measurements, whereas it is really just a different line.

    I dropped them a line via their contact page - be interesting to see what they say.

    Sorry, In an effort to add an image I deleted my post. I'll repeat this so it makes sense to folks that didn't see the post. I'm replacing the nut with a core nut on my standard SE24. I want the TRC to meet up with the slightly smaller nut so I ordered a plain ebony and plain rosewood from
    https://shop.custominlay.com/PRS-Fits-Paul-Reed-Smith_c159.htm . They are making them longer from the screw hole to the nut so I can sand it down to meet up with the core nut. Below is spec for the original TRC and the cover I ordered. My measurements of the factory cover were very close to the (import) specs. I did get bridge pins from these folks a while back and I'm happy with those. Sorry to hijack the thread, but I'm guessing the swag is gone by now.

    I successfully added the images :) I don't think they are PRS experts so I wouldn't trust that "newer or older" description. The import image I found on the web was close to my measurements without using a caliper. The 2nd image in my post is the spec I agreed upon with them for my needs.

    I got my envelope of goodies today! Thanks, that was really cool of you! You inspired me to give away a couple vintage trumpet mouthpieces on a horn forum I use. Paid forward!

    Here's a thought, how about making this a "Pay It Forward" type of thread? If you accept the generosity from a fellow member, you offer up a spare part to another member in return? It could be a cool thing and it would keep the love fest alive.

    Hey Scott, you may have mentioned it and I skimmed over it. Either way, great idea!

    And if Wedge doesn't mind, maybe I'll change the name of the thread to "Pay It Forward - Free Swag"
