    I've got to make a neck plate for one of my Steinberger's; can't find any anywhere, not even Ed Roman. I also need to have another trem arm made for it, which uses a knurled nut type thingy on it:


    Do machine shops actually do this kind of thing? Is this somthing I could get made cheaply, or am I looking at big bucks? Any advise would be mucho appreciato.

    I know a metal guy. Drawing of what you need plate-wise would help.

    Yeah, custom metal pieces are something you usually do yourself, by maintaining a relationship with someone who has a metal shop, and buying him a few beers ...

    ....the beer is DEFINITELY a good idea....however, do NOT let him see this, as it would certainly ruin any chances:
