Control and Toggle Back Plates for Gibson USA or Historic 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 earlier Historic guitars. The original plates in the 50s were stamped from sheet material. CreamTone Vintage Design back plates are made from black 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.
We make them to fit USA and Historic Les Pauls. Gibson changed the screw placement on the Historics in 2009. Choose your model from the menu at the top of this description.
