DON’T WORRY – WE’LL CREATE ONE FOR YOU FREE!
We’re more than happy to match any original standard fit plate FREE! Yep, you read that right – completely gratis! Nada! Rien! Nowt! We’re fully aware that there are considerably more than eleventy-twelve plate styles and in order to give you a plate that fits your bass the best way for us to do this is to use the real McCoy! Why? Well, it’s simple really, it helps us increase our library of plate templates available so win-win 🙂
By far the most reliable way of ensuring we can exactly match your plate is to Email us a scan of it – it doesn’t matter if you need to do LH & RH sections as long as there’s a good size overlap as we can piece them together – or a couple of ££ well spent is to ask a local copy shop or printers to scan for you – just Email it to us as a JPEG scanned as a hi-res photograph (300dpi) with the BACK of the plate touching the scanner glass (don’t worry, we’ll digitally flip it) & with a contrasting coloured background so we can clearly see all the edges; or if you prefer send us a good quality tracing of your plate: take it off your guitar and trace around it using a fine tipped pen on white paper, ensuring you leave no white gaps around the perimeter, then simply pop your tracing 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.
Additionally we can produce your plate to 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 01234 353753 or drop us a line via the contact form or an Email to: firstname.lastname@example.org if you need further help.
