Color-matching Cream Parts and Bindings
There have always been slight variations in the color of the cream plastic parts used on Gibson and other guitars. It's not uncommon to see brand new and vintage guitars with bindings, pickup rings, toggle switch rings and pickguards that don't perfectly match in color. We do our best to match all our cream products, but there's no absolute control from batch to batch, or from supplier to supplier.

I'm a bit confused as to why one end of the mounting ring is higher than the other and it slopes gradually down. I'm not certain as to what side goes where when mounting. Also, it barely just fits over the humbucker routing pocket I did using the humbucker routing template. I would prefer it to be a tad bit wider on the sides to insure complete coverage with no chance of peeking thru to the pocket below. Other than those 2 things, it works fine.

Because of neck angle, some guitars require tapered mounting rings. The taller end faces the bridge. We've passed your suggestions along to our technical staff.

Not much to a plastic humbucker ring. Sturdy plastic.

Nice rings- but the color?

I found this rings to be very nice, in color and shape. Some customers may think the cream color is off (it does not match bindings, nor the pickup selector plate, nor the pickguard). Well, original Gibsons also don't. The plastic or bone nut is also a different shade of cream. The cream knobs also won't match. I prefer this way. True to the originals.

Does what is supposed to do

Sanded them down easily to desired height. Look nice, no issues with quality.

Easy to work with

I should have gone with a smaller one, but it's so easy to just file down that it's really no big deal. It looks great! Couldn't ask for more out of a cheap plastic ring. Congrats on another high-quality product!

Did the trick

Did the trick. They look great, but like a few other reviewers, I had to sand down. Just a smidge too high of a profile.
