Custom Laser Cut Guitar Control Plates Not for sale
Add a new design

Updated January 2017

Plates can now be ordered directly though the store on my website.

https://store.factionguitars.com/collections/control-plates

Disclaimer: These plates are actually for sale, but because of the way I handle orders on them I have to list them on Ponoko in this way. All of my guitar routing templates are made to order by Ponoko, but all of my plates are kept in stock by me.

Ponoko shut down their metal laser cutting services a couple of years ago, but I've found a new supplier for getting metal plates made. To see what I have in stock, you can reference this spreadsheet:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1XIf0POTjOTJfBEAGxN1U7nejme5XxaG9CCaa9zqD6ig/edit#gid=0

After many rounds of custom guitar plate orders, Paul Rhoney has graciously allowed me to take over the ordering of custom laser cut control plates. I do control plate orders for my own guitar company, so I have the capability to add customer's plates to the order to fill up the extra space and help out everyone in need of custom plates.

I'll continue to sell Paul's plate designs, as well as new ones that pop into my head that I think are useful and cool. And of course I can accommodate your requests and ideas as well. I'll also try to maintain an inventory of popular plate designs, such as the Bass VI plates that work with the Bass VI templates available through this showroom. Johnny Marr and Kurt Cobain Jaguar plates also seem to be popular, so I'll try to keep them in stock as well.

The plates are made from 2mm thick laser cut stainless steel, and are buffed and polished to a reflective finish. In person they closely resemble chrome, and match up well with both chrome and nickel hardware.

Cost per plate is $50 with free shipping. This covers US domestic as well as international orders. If you are in need of a plate bigger than around the size of a Jaguar tremolo, the cost will go up a bit. I can also do more elaborate custom designs for a reasonable fee.

So how do you get a custom design made? Getting stainless steel laser cut isn't cheap, so I set up a waiting list for people interested in a plate or plates. I have to be able to order enough plates to keep the costs per plate down on my end, and make it worthwhile for my supplier. So you email me letting me know what plate(s) you want, and I put you down on the list. Once I have enough people on the list, I'll take payment through PayPal from everyone and set up the order. Once I receive the plates from my supplier, I countersink the appropriate holes and get them buffed/polished. I then ship the plates off to everyone.

If you'd like to see an example of what can be made, this image demonstrates some popular designs made in the past.

Of course, I can also make pretty much anything that you would want. I can work off of drawings or an idea, the only limits are really your imagination.

If you want to order an in stock plate, get on the waiting list, or have any questions, feel free to contact me at factionguitars@gmail.com
