Tall Black Butyrate Pickup Rings for Gibson USA Les Paul • CreamTone Classic Collection
For the past year, we've been working on molds for a brand-new line of Absolute Vintage M69 pickups rings. When they're finished they will be a near-perfect recreation of the original 50s rings.
We just received a few sample sets of the first-finish proof of the outside of the black rings, and they look sweet! Lightly aged with just the right amount of gloss. But the bottom mold isn't finished yet, so I can't list them in our Absolute Vintage Collection without the embossed M69, along with the other tooling marks. I didn't want to see them go to waste... And then I had a great idea!
These tall, black rings are the first sets to be shot on the new CreamTone molds! The bottom-side of the ring is blank with no tooling marks. The top is done in a lightly aged semi-gloss finish. They're made from butyrate, the same material Gibson shot the original M69 rings from in the 50s. They're soft and pliable, guaranteed not to break. Offered for your Gibson USA and Gibson Memphis guitars at an unheard-of price for private-builder butyrate rings.
