Switch Ring/Poker Chip for Historic or USA Gibson Les Paul • 1959-1960 • Black
Presenting the new CreamTone 1959-1960 poker chip!
Most Burst replica chips have the lettering laid directly on the surface in gold foil leaf. If you've ever owned one of these replicas, you're aware of how delicate they are and how easily the letters rub off, leaving you with a blank chip. Our chips are engraved first, then the surface is leveled and the letters are filled by hand with gold paint. This process guarantees that the letters will never rub completely off, instead they will wear like the originals and become even more attractive with age.
Each one is buffed out to a soft glow that lands somewhere between glossy and aged. We loved the look so much we decided to forego our usual choice of NOS or LIX Patina finishes and offer these just as they come off the first buffer. This also streamlines production, allowing us to offer these at a very attractive price point, and they look amazing on any old or new Les Paul!
Handcrafted in USA.
