Control and Toggle Back Plates for Gibson Les Paul Absolute Vintage Collection • LIX Patina Black
Gibson changed the material of the USA Les Paul control and toggle covers in 2014 to a textured faux-leather look that many don't particularly care for. Gibson also uses an injection-mold to make the back plates on both the USA and Historic guitars. The original plates in the 50s were stamped from sheet material. CreamTone Vintage Design back plates are made from sheet material and finished entirely by hand.
Offered in our LIX Patina lightly aged finish. LIX is the Roman numeral for 59. Even though these plates are brand new, they have the look of well-worn pieces from that era. This set is a tremendous upgrade for any Les Paul.
This set fits the Gibson USA Les Paul line (Traditional, Classic, Standard, etc.) and Historic reissues made before 2009. Screw placement on more recent Historics can vary from one guitar to another. If you're interested in a set of plates for a reissue made since 2009, contact us for a custom quote.
