Plexiglass
« on: March 14, 2019, 02:17:23 PM »
I've seen plexiglass spacers on some of the enclosures (under the lid)
Does somebody make these, or are they a custom made thing?
I mod cheap guitars because my local music store said not to.

Do you mean the clear plastic things? I believe those are referred to as "light plates"

You can of course "roll your own".  If you do, try use lexan instead of plexiglass.  Its easier to sand and less brittle.

FYI:  you will need longer screws to get the lid on your enclosure.  Some sites provide them, some don't.  Smallbear has several light plate sizes for different standard enclosures.
