Tight fit for a vintage Les Paul Deluxe

By

Verified Buyer


I acquired a set of replacement pickups for my '69 LP Deluxe, to try to smooth out the choppy sound of the original mini-humbuckers. The installation process was more difficult than expected. I couldn't reuse the original mounting rings, because they had used the spacer and soldered-on nut process described in the mounting instructions available on the StewMac website, and couldn't be easily disassembled.

These replacement rings are slightly larger in outside diameter than the originals. I measured them with calipers and found them larger by 1/32" in length and width. They still fit in the routs in my guitar, but I had to trim the plastic face plate and the pickguard with a file, because they overlapped the routed holes by enough to prevent the mounting rings from being inserted.

The new pickups had more windings and were taller than the originals, so the standard nylon spacers are not long enough to level out these pickups in the rings. Instead, I used a set of the pickup mounting springs (which are not generally used with minis) in place of the spacers, and installed 2 nuts locked together to hold the pickups at the right height in the rings. Having the springs was essential to this process, because you need to compress the spring a little bit to get a wrench on the first nut to tighten the pair together. This seems better than soldering a single nut to the screw, and makes it easier to get the pickups level in the ring.

Other than the outside diameter, these mounting rings are a fine replacement for the originals. The screw holes are correctly aligned, the color is a perfect match, and the final product looks great. StewMac's customer service was especially good, pulling a pair of the rings over the phone and measuring them for me.

Fits perfectly!

I don't have a Gibson guitar, so I'm not worried about what the other reviews say. I put this on a custom build and it fits my mini humbucker perfectly. More of an ivory than cream in colour which suits me perfectly. Nice looking plastic, it seems to be substantial.

Deluxe Mini Humbucker Ring

By

Verified Buyer


This does not fit a Gibson Les Paul Deluxe route. It is oversized in both directions and is larger than the original and larger that the specifications listed on the web page. This should be corrected as this is not usable on a a Les Paul Deluxe. Specifications should be changed and this should be noted in the description.

Does not fit Gibson P-90 rout!

By

Verified Buyer


I concur with the previous reviewer that these rings do not fit a Gibson P90 rout which is 3-3/8" long. Although the listed dimension is 3-3/8" the actual rings measure 3-7/16". They are 1/16" too long. I too tried to fit them into a Gibson LP 60's Tribute LP - no go. Just for verification, I pulled out an original Gibson minibucker mounting ring from my parts stash and it measures 3-3/8". Please take note Stewmac! Aside from being a 16th longer than spec'd, it's still good quality.

Too big to fit Gibson

By

Verified Buyer


The cream ring they sent me (Sept. '16) was longer & wider than the dimensions listed. Actual size (mm) 87.3 x 35.5 (outside dim.) Would not begin to fit into the P90 rout of my Gibson Les Paul 60s Tribute, not even a tight squeeze. Called Stewmac and got a quick refund after they checked it out, thanks to them. I hope they pull these from their stock or at least check the size before shipping any more.
