Here’s where I got the black disk placement from…
The bubble strip is definitely over the label, they tend to always cover up anything that says it’s from Earth. Also the disk is there but I’m guessing it could have fallen off later which typically happens with Star Wars props. I have it on mine, I’d have to dig up all my references if you want specifics. I do have a reference photo of it missing in an exhibit after Star Wars but in ANH I believe it’s there.
I’d like to offer the following solution for the side mystery box (EIAJ/Ibanez/video cable plug) assembly:
They have two products in stock you can search on L5210 or L5203. $10 each plus $10 shipping. So $20. It’s not supremely accurate, but it’s close for a cheap build. Not metal but plastic, and it can be filed or filled with putty, etc. The sales Person told me that they make the plug. So even if they don’t have either cable in stock they can make them in short order.
I wish I had found it before I spent a lot more for an Ibanez UE405…
Accuracy (quality) of parts and low price don’t often intersect. Considering some cheaper builds aren’t focused on accuracy per se, that’s why I thought it might be acceptable for some builders.I received this. It won't work. It would be easier to scratch build than mode this.
The above Ebay item would be a better choice.
