    Anyone have a source for these? The plexi style are of course very popular and easy to source, but I haven't had much luck on the brushed. I have the plexi style on now and it looks and works fine, but it's not "correct", and that bugs me just a little. Thanks.

    I was going to reco Monotone but Craigp already did so Ill just add. I have bought cabs and face plates from them and they are the best you can get at a fair price with excellent customer service hands down!!!

    I agree that they look great, and I've always been pleased by Mojo, but I don't believe that those are what I'm looking for.

    As far as I understand when I talked to Mojo, they said I could send any custom specifications (drawings), and they would make it. The price to set up seemed fair.

    Do they make the factory Marshall style gold metal plates in correct color? The plexiglass ones are nice, and I have a couple, but the color is off from factory Jmp/ jcm plates. The slp plates seem pretty close though.

    These are the closest you will find IMO. I have not found anyone that makes the exact originals in metal with the same color and I have looked for years.

    This one is from Modulus in Scotland
    [​IMG]
    It's engraved acrylic with a brushed foil. It won't fool a collector close up but look really good from a few feet

    Interesting!!! Not trying to fool anyone, but that certainly looks more correct. I'll look them up. Much thanks.

    +1 on the Modulus for the same reasons, there is a pic here of one on a restored orange 71 SB I did. I sent him an original to copy. So the font and layout should be 100%, it is just the material.
