    Jackplate for a Rhoads?

    Just what it says -- I have a rhoads-shape guitar with the output jack on the upper bout. is there somewhere where one can get the strat-style jackplate pre-contoured for the curve of the horn? or do I just have to live with the flat strat plate and/or try to bend it myself?

    Are you sure it's actually curved? Long time since I've played a Rhoads but I seem to remember them just being standard strat types

      well i put a flat one on there and there's a gap below it in the middle.

      Strictly speaking it's an Edwards Alexi. The body shape is in theory identical to a rhoads but I'm sure there are small differences -- maybe this is one of them.

        Having worked at FMIC, they are either not curved on rhoads or they are hand bent at the factory. We would sometimes ask for replacement ones, expecting curved, but would get straight.

          They’re not curved.

            The Alexi is definitely curved a bit. I think your best bet would be to take the plate you have off and try to bend it to match?

              Does Dave over at frets on the net make jackplates? I know he makes all streets of stuff; pickup rings for everything, back plates, RR guards, trussrod covers, etc.
