vintage 1956 gibson truss rod cover for J200 byrdland L5 1959 1960 1957 ces l5c
  • From my private collection.....this is a TRC I have had for decades....kind of thinning the herd of parts a bit. This is a 1956 TRC removed from a 56 L5-ces, but also correct for J200 and Byrdland. It shows some normal RELIC wear, a few string scratches....but is in strong structural condition and has a fantastic authentic RELIC vibe.  WARRANTY: 100% money back if the item is not what the pictures or the description represent. If the item gets damaged during transit, buyer and seller work together to file a claim. (Used and vintage items are sold as-is, based on a thorough description I provide).
