    Flying V Logo?
    you mean like the Truss Rod Cover?

    Anyone that deals in Aftermarket Gibson parts should be able to sell you one of those, but I am not certain if that's what you are after.

    Periodically I also see the raised Gold Lettered "Gibson" that appeared on the 58's and subsequent Historic reissues. pop up, but less frequently.

    The 1958 style "Gibson" logo is what I'm looking for.

    I'd call those guys, I did a few months ago, and they were able to locate something for me. They may be able to let you know if they can get another part or when they're coming in.
    Worth checking!

    True "escaped from the factory" ones with pins show up for sale from time to time. I've bought a few off Ebay. Also check places that stock Gibson amp parts. The logos used on the Gibson tweed amps will meet your needs as well.
