    Really like that style of truss rod cover.

    Have never run across anyone selling a repro version.

    Oh, and the rest of the guitar is quite nice, too!

    You don't have to buy a repro version; originals are available, but it will cost you some. Not interchangeable with the molded plastic ones though!

    awagner,
    I sure would like to visit your guitar "closet" some time... I'd be like a kid in a candy store, unable to decide which to try first!

    Awesome guitar!!!!

    I cherish my D-55 that I bought new in 1977, but I'm sure another 7 years of aging plus Braz RW makes yours really really special.

    BTW Hans, who is HattedFrau?
    I tried googling him or her, but no help there.

    No. I bought the D55 in November. Just didn’t get the chance to post the NGD thread until now (hence, the “Belated NGD” thread title).
