Broken Truss Rod Cover

Q: I was adjusting the truss rod on my Les Paul and when I put the truss rod cover back on and tightened down the screw, the cover cracked. Can this be fixed or do I have to replace it?

A: It will be tough to fix, though you can try gluing or Super Gluing it. There are replacement Gibson truss rod covers available.

As you’ve learned (sorry about the accident), the screws that hold the truss rod cover on don’t have to be cranked down too tight — just snug enough to hold the cover in place without rattling.
