CAN’T FIND YOUR BASS TEMPLATE?

DON’T WORRY – WE’LL CREATE ONE FOR YOU FREE!

We can cut a plate to any shape & if we don’t already have your template on file we’re more than happy to generate a template to fit any standard guitar or bass FREE! Yes, that’s right, completely gratis! Nada! Rien! Nowt! Why would we do such a crazy thing I here you ask – well, it’s simple, we’d really like to increase our library of plate templates & the best way for us to do this is to use the real McCoy! Oh, hold on a minute though, let’s make this crystal clear though shall we – we mean a TEMPLATE free – not the actual plate – we’ll create the correct shape for a standard factory model which means you don’t need to worry if yours isn’t listed on the website, because we’ll make it happen!

By far the most reliable way of ensuring we can exactly match your plate is for you to take it off your guitar and scan it as a hi-res 300dpi colour or greyscale photograph. Simply scan it with the BACK of the plate touching the scanner glass (don’t worry, we’ll digitally flip it so you don’t end up with a lefty if the original is a righty!) & with a contrasting coloured background (which means pop a piece of coloured paper between plate & scanner lid so we can clearly see all the edges in the end result) & save it as a JPEG & Email it to us at hello@gig.ink – if you don’t have access to a scanner then a couple of quid well spent is to visit a local copy shop or printer & ask them to do it.

Additionally, by all means send us a good quality tracing of your plate – which means taking your plate off & tracing around it using a fine-tipped pen on white paper – ensuring you leave no white gaps around the perimeter – then simply pop that in the post to us, which we’ll digitally recreate. You’re also more than welcome to post us your actual plate if you wish, which we’ll naturally return to you with your completed order.

Finally, you’re not limited to a direct replacement plate as we can produce your plate in any configuration you’d like – although please note that we charge an additional £10.00 for bespoke cutting  – just let us know exactly what pickups & controls you’ll be using as pickup sizes & mounting positions do vary – but ultimately we can cut to any shape so we’ll get there!

Confused? Don’t be – it’s far easier than you’d think – just give us a bell on 07446394455 or drop us a line via the contact form or an Email to: hello@gig.ink if you need further help.
