I purchased this truss rod cover as an upgrade for my Gibson J185 True Vintage, when I ordered it initially I thought it was seriously overpriced but on receipt I was very happily surprised at the quality, just a little relicing & it looked like a genuine vintage truss cover, a perfect upgrade from the plain black cover that my J185TV came with. The guitar now looks fully dressed & period correct. If you like to have the details correct it's worth the price. A perfect upgrade for a reissue or with a few little ageing tricks an adequate replacement for a missing vintage cover. Recommended.
