body end truss rod protector?
Anyone know what the little plastic scoop is called that covers the truss rod access at the body?
Opening. Access hole. Cutout. Thing.
Plastic truss rod scoop
Truss rod cover
Had to buy one for my les paul once.
Not that end of the truss rod, the part that protects the body end-looks like a little plastic scoop...
For more serious replies, more info would be the way to go. Pictures always work the best (hint, hint). Make/model of what we're talking about would help as well.
Megafiddle is correct. Even at the body, it is called a truss rod cover.
On a Fender style, it is a plastic tube, cut at an angle to blend with the headstock. It is strictly to finish off the ugly hole.
It's the ULHD (Ugly Little Hole Disguise) more commonly known as "Oriface Camo".
It's a "hole" or "access hole" or "access cutout". The plastic insert is an "insert", or maybe a "sleeve" or "liner" if the maker was creative.
He's talking about this
Some basses have what maurilio shows, some don't. Laklands don't. And I don't know of a stock part that would fit the Lakland. I guess you would call it a truss rod access hole protector. There are some makers that cover the hole with a plate. Like Alembic:
So if the access hole bothers you, just buy and Alembic. You'll get a great bass with that cover plate!
