White Falcon Truss Rod Cover Help


Does anyone have any of the orange/gold sparkle drum nitron? I'm going to make a new truss rod cover for my '69 White Falcon. The new Gretsch replacement covers are way too short. I'll need a piece 1 1/2" X 2 1/2".


I called Precision Drum of New York and they said they'd send me a sample piece big enough to make the truss rod cover! The picture of the crushed glass gold wrap looks like the orangy gold Gretsch used. Hopefully it will be thick enough to use by itself, but if not, I can laminate it with some thin white drum covering I have.
