My Fly Mojo
« on: August 15, 2014, 12:36:19 PM »
Bought a Natural Mahogany Fly Mojo back in February and decided I didn't like to stock black metal knobs or the metal truss rod cover so I modified them. Take a look.

Nice, especially like the truss road cover. The stock one is real ugly...

Thanks guys. You would think that when spending over $4,000 for an instrument you would get the classiest looking axe on earth instead of one with crappy knobs and truss rod covers, eh?

I think Gibson has been guilty of this since the beginning of their time as well. They spend massive amounts of time gluing and carving and binding only to put cheap plastic rings and knobs on the guitar. I think it's just an industry thing. I have been looking at exotic woods rings and such for my FMS. It just seems appropriate for a higher end guitar.

A friend of mine is a master woodcarver and did the truss rod cover for me. He is at
