From this (mine has two screws at the bottom, not one):




To this:



Will i be able to do that? I prefer the look of a 2 pin bell to a 3 pin arc.

simple enough to do, but why? most peeps leave the covers off to save time when setting up. and it`s only a truss rod cover, it`s not like everyone is gonna be staring at it. (sarcastic comment withheld)

I don't see why it wouldn't work.. And yes I personally think that the second one looks better..
If you start a reply with: I have never played one but I have heard good things about it! Your opinion is invalid.

As long as you're comfortable with drilling a new hole in your headstock, and assuming the distance between the top screw hole and the line drawn between the bottom two is the same length as the distance between the two screw holes on the new guard... then yes.

Also you'll probably see some of the unbuffed finish currently under the cover when you install the new one. And it's possible you'll see the two old screw holes as well. Just some random thought on the subject

like said, there wont be a bottom hole, and there MIGHT not even be wood there to drill into to make the bottom center hole.

so in that case, you'd have to add a little piece of wood you can drill into to secure the cover,
but something you could remove to access the truss rod nut.

Yeah I'm thinking this would be a problem for you mate. Honestly it just seems more work for no reward.
