Hi guy's, would one of you kind fellow US ADA Depot heads do me a favour?

I want to buy a mirror scratchplate for my MIM Standard fat strat with Floyd rose.  I want to start playing this guitar again but I kinda wanted to change it cosmetically and fit it out with some dimarzio's (undecided as to what though).

Anyways, why do I need your help? 

Well here in the shitty old UK (now leaving the EU  :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm:)
We are only able to get scratchplates done in mirror style for regular strats, that means standard trem, not the wider Floyd rose version.  This is f**king ridiculous.  I asked some fellow Europeans in Netherlands if they could sell me one, but to my dismay they said "no FR versions just standard".

sOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

That leaves me with the US option.  No problems right?  Of course not.  I have ordered all kinds of things from the US without issue apart from f**king guitars where I got raped £100 import tax (never ever again).

Anyways, I found a scratchplate, done up to the size I need, the FR trem size and done in a mirror!   :thumb-up:

oh yeah now we are rocking guys!


NOT!  When I go to buy this scratch plate, suddenly the postage shoots up like $39.95 just to get a light piece of plastic with some foil on it sent to the humble shores of Northern Ireland.

Now this is ridiculous considering the weight of the object.  However US postage is FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!

So I was wondering, can someone in the US allow me to order this scratchplate, then have it sent to them for FREE!!!!!  Then they send the scratchplate to me, and I will reimburse them the shipping cost?

Please let me know guys as I am not paying TNT custom guitars another $39.95 for a flimsy lightweight package to be sent to me.

I just thought of something, Gerry....  (I know... scary, right?)  ;)

What about getting the non-Floyd pickguard that is readily available to you and then modifying it to your needs?  Shouldn't be too hard, right?  It's plastic.....Just open up the notch a bit to accommodate a wider bridgeplate?

Thought about it man, but I don't have a jigsaw to do it right.

I could perhaps also get one made custom by sending a template of my scratchplate to a company who makes customer plates.  Could be more expensive though.

Did you try communicating with Perle Guitars through their eBay listings?  Usually sellers respond pretty quickly; their shipping rate to Ireland is confirmed at $15.
