I am looking for a brass pick up plate, looks like Matt Moriarty is no longer offering them. Any sources?
I would also like the 5 way switch plate, Thanks!

Same thing happened to me. I had one made here: http://www.fretsonthenet.com/
Was $45 a few weeks ago. Make sure you have all your your dimensions ready when you order. He did a very nice job. Mine is 1/16" thick. I'm not sure if he offers it 1/8" thick, but this one looks great and 1/16" thick works fine! Just mounted it yesterday and am starting the wiring today. Good luck! :smile: :smile: :smile:

Good question, I've made a few myself but the ring took me over 2 days to make fooling around with the brass, I need to get some better metal working equipment!
