Here is a quick, easy, and inexpensive way to really dress up your guitar. A custom Truss Rod Cover can add that personal touch that will make your instrument stand out from the crowd. Below are some examples of other custom t-covers I've done.
YES!!! We do custom covers. Below is a photo (left) I was sent by Lauren Melton of Greensboro, NC who wanted to purchase a special gift for her boyfriend, Nathan Griffin. He loves his PRS guitar and his loyal dalmation, so she wanted to combine those into the perfect gift. Using a combination of MOP, Red Abalone and a bit of black paint, I created this. Here is what Lauren had to say, "OMG!!! I am in tears right now! It looks absolutely AMAZING!!!! I LOVE it!!! I would love for you to sign the back! It is such an amazing piece of artwork!!! Thank you SOOOOOO very much! I absolutely adore it!!! I couldn't have asked for anything better!!! (still in happy tears)!! Thank you again for your dedication and hardwork that you put into this piece. I cant wait to see his [boyfiend's] reaction!!!!" Lauren sure does love exclamation points!!!

I really like this one. The Pharaoh cover is made of White and Gold Mother of Pearl, Paua, Lapis, Bloody Jasper, and a red acrylic for the eye. This is made of 24 pieces and is one of my trickier covers to make. It was commission by Kentry Kinard of Waldorf, MD and is based on one of his tatoos. This will certainly look great on his headstock. Kentry commneted, "It looks amazing. Hell, it looks better than my tattoo. The blue in the headress looks incredible. The graining is spectacular. The use of light on the face is artistic genius. Very thoughtful. I can tell you were selective in your choice of shell pieces. " Custom Inlay,Guitar Inlay,Shark Inlay,Truss Rod Cover
Paul Reed Smith, PRS, Viking, Custom Inlay Truss Rod Cover,Guitar Inlay,Custom Inlay I think this is my record for the most number of pieces in a truss rod cover - 23! That's a crazy number of pieces in something so small. The eyes are about 1/16" in length. But that why it is sooooo cool. This piece takes a while to build, but is worth it. It's made with Brushed Nickel Steel for the helmet, White and Black Mother of Pearl for the horns, 50 thousand year old Fossilized Mamoth Ivory for the face, Yellow Cedar for the hair and beard, and Sparkle Paua for the eyes.
What makes a custom tcover GREAT! Well, take a look at this tiger head cover. You don't see covers like this often. 22 pieces of White Mother of Pearl, Paua, and Bloody Jasper on Ebony. There is no etching, paint, fillers, or coloring used on this cover (like most of my covers). Everything you see is shell, stone, and wood. The lucky owner of this work of art is Michael Onofrietti from Honolulu, Hawaii. Micheal wrote me this, "The cover is absolutely unreal!! I just got the cover in the mail today, and it is absolutely spectacular! The detail is unreal, and it is going to look great on my jet white guitar." PRS Paul Reed Smith Truss Rod Cover,Guitar Inaly,Custom Inlay
PRS Paul Reed Smith Truss Rod Cover,Guitar Inaly,Custom Inlay For you Holloween fans this one is perfect. This is an extreme oversized cover. The cover is desiged for a PRS headstock and the raven and the moon are above the middle set for tuning peg. Yeah, big. This piece was commissioned by James Burken of Aurora, IL.

The Skulls are Mother of Pearl with a Marble cross and Black Mother of Pearl Raven. The screw hole for the cover is right in the middle of the cross so the screw will become part of the design. The skulls are heavily edged for detail and the white on the top of the clouds is painted. I don't use a lot of paint, but sometimes is necessary to get the desired effect.
Custom Inlay,Guitar Inlay,Shark Inlay,Truss Rod CoverCustom Inlay,Guitar Inlay,Shark Inlay,Truss Rod Cover I love this cover! When I first drew it up, I knew it was going to be special, but it truned out even better than I hoped. This piece was commissioned by Chris Von Wahlde of Reading, Ohio who picked out many of the materials used on the cover. This little fishy is made up of White and Gold Mother of Pearl, Dinosaur Red Bone, and Arizonia Jade on Lace Wood. I absolute love it!

The lower picture is a variation on the theme. The interesting thing about this one is the backing is made from three different parts, Blue Jean Lapis, Banded Malichite, and Deep Blue Lapis. Gives is a watery effect.
Custom Inlay,Guitar Inlay,Shark Inlay,Truss Rod Cover The record has been BROKEN!!! This cover is made with 29 pieces shattering my own pervious record of 23 on the Viking cover shown below. It took me three hours just to test fit all the pieces after they were cut. This cover is made of Pink Muscle, Gold Mother of Pearl, and Maple on Ebony. You won't find Pink Muscle listed in my materials list because it's hard to get and only very small pieces are available. This was a special order material that just worked out for all the little pieces I needed. This piece of commissioned by John Rainwater, of Alexandria, VA.
It's Mario!!! Yes that is a pixelated 1 Up mushroom from the famous Mario 3. This fun little number was requested by Andrew Manz of San Diego, CA. This is made of Koa, Ebony, Jade, and Fake Ivory. It makes you want to sing the song doesn't it. Beep, beep, beep be be beep ... Custom Inlay,Guitar Inlay,Shark Inlay,Truss Rod Cover,Mario

This is a tribute piece for Brendan McFarlan dog form Arizonia. It's made of Koa Wood, Mother of Pearl and Obsidian on Ebony. Brendan had these comments after he received the cover:
"I can not be more impressed and happy with the truss rod cover you created for me. You absolutely captured the spirit of our dog Rogue, and every detail of the design is perfect. The chosen woods and shell look amazing, and the amount of detail in such a small piece of art is indescribable. I have not hesitated to send pictures to all of my musician friends to show them what a gift you can create for them."

Custom Inlaid Taylor Owl Truss Rod Cover Yes, believe it or not, this is a truss rod cover. I think we have to give these sorts of things a different name. If you look carefully for the two screw holes, you will see how it attaches to the headstock. However, unlike a normal t-cover, this one is going to take over a good chunk of the headstock. This is designed to fit on a Taylor head stock. I'll post pictures of it on the guitar once I have them. I'm really looking forward to seeing that myself. This was order by Michael Reed of Plainfield, IL the same owl fan that had me create the Owl Family cover shown below. He always likes to give me a challenge and I'm glad he does, because just look at it!!!

Custom Inlay,Guitar Inlay,Shark Inlay,Truss Rod Cover Commissioned by Scott White of Bloomington, IL this cover was designed to add as classy touch to a Taylor guitar.

Scott commented, (he also purchased the Tayor Great White Shark shown above at the same time) "Wow!!!! They look Amazing. Can't wait to see them on the guitar. Dude, you do GREAT work!!!"

PRS Paul Reed Smith Truss Rod Cover "Ever Watchful Over America"

Based on a combination of cover designs (Ever Watchful and Eagle Mountain #20 - both pictured below), this cover is the latest in the Limited Edition series. This cover is made from Bloody Jasper, Clear Lapis, White/Gold/Black Mother of Pearl, Red Abalone, and Brass (for the flag staff). "Ever Watchful Over America" replaces the long time favorite Tiger Head (shown below) in the harolded first position on this page. Currently, this cover is only available on PRS guitars. This proto-type (#1) is the property of Craig C. of South Huntington New York. Craig had this to say about his new piece of art, "The piece is ROCKIN!!!!!! You do impecable work! Kudos to you! Couldn't be happier."
Taylor Owl Familiy Truss Rod Cover Yes, this is a truss rod cover. It's for a Taylor or Gibson guitar. The customer, Michael Reed of Plainfield, IL, wanted an entire owl family. My first reaction was, "Yeah right, a tcover is an inch tall." But then Michael ask me to be creative and so I was. The screw hole is just over the Mommy owl's head. The Daddy owl extends over the screw into the headstock. It's more of a headstock inlay that just happens to double as a truss rod cover. One of the most interesting projects I've worked on this year.

ESP Shark Truss Rod Cover CALL IT . . . HEAVY METAL!!! Created for a B.C.Rich owned by Anthony Lucchese of New York. this is yet another example for thinking outside the box. A tcover does not have to be shaped like half an egg. The outside of this one is black flame to highlight the Paua flames inside. Pretty bitching . . . do they still say that? I think I'm getting old. Anthony's comments:"You've definitely outdone yourself. I like the TRC you did for my PRS. But this is just outstanding!"
The inlay is made of white and gold MOP with brass leash and sits on Ebony. This t-cover, in my opinion, is one of my top ten of all time. The little hair lines are done by etching the pearl. This cover is a standard design that has been made before. However, there are many design changes to the cover that are only possible thanks to the CAM machine technology that I now employ. Note how cleanly all the pieces fit and how the delicate leash surrounds the body. It's a beautiful piece. This cover belongs to Mark Overfield from the U.K. Paul Reed Smith Wolf Truss Rod Cover
PRS Paul Reed Smith Truss Rod Cover Made for Ric Goleman for Houston TX, this cover will be going on a PRS Single Cut that was purchased on a "Aid Kateria Victims" auction.

Ric commented, "Cliff did an excellent job, the contrast of the Paua and MOP jumps out at you, and the ebony black background really sets the inlay off."
