    Hi Folks!

    Does anyone know where I can get custom jack plates made? Ideally, I'd like to provide a supplier with the dimensions and shape, then have the supplier punch press them, radius them to follow the contour of a guitar, and electroplate chrome on them. I'm not looking to have anything elaborate done with relief, just 2-dimensional geometric polygons that can be stamped through a die.

    Thanks!

    Have you looked at the eMachineShop software? You can design what you want in a 3D CAD setting, set all the properties like material and finish, submit it for a quote, and then have them make it and ship it to you.
