This was probably the most unique request we have had for a custom truss rod cover. Maybe not for everyone but it fits the fun loving personality of the player perfectly.We made it entirely of wood, maple, mahogany and ebony. With a maple backer. We love seeing what customers come up with, one of my favorite things about building!

Fun and nicely crafted. Not sure exactly what kind of animal it is, but I like it. DD

Looks to be a sloth; slow single string picker?
Looks great Chris!

Sloth claws sure would be a natural replacement for finger picks.

Sloth claws are no competition for a badger's digging claws!

My TB-2 cover helped me find out about the original owner who was a Maine resident of Deering.
