Bridge and pickup covers (ashtray) for Epi Thunderbird Classic IV?

    Hi Folks,

    I just picked up an Epiphone TBird Classic IV, and would love to trick this bass out with an over the bridge "ashtray" cover and over the pickup ashtray cover (not the pickup covers themselves).

    Any idea where I can get aftermarket covers? I did a few searches with no luck. I don't want to spend the $$$ for original Gibson covers, so I am hoping there is a cheaper alternative. Would the standard silver P-Bass ashtray pickup cover work on a Tbird? Any other ashtray bridge covers that might be a good substitute?

    Thanks for you help! :)

    Pbass ashtrays will not work, they are too low.

    A seller on eBay sells repro Gibson ashtrays that should work. I have a nice vintage knockoff one with pitting in the chrome and nice patina of age if you're interested but no pickup covers . PM me.
