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.

Vintage Kalamazoo is Redeemed

By

Verified Buyer


I am a new customer to Stew-MacDonald and now a loyal supporter. It has opened a whole world to me as a player and avid acoustic enthusiast. I was excited to find the parts I needed and some valuable instruction on how to repair a 1940's Kalamazoo guitar that I had been asked to care for by a family member. The original tuner pearls were shot and needed replacement. Since the original tuner hardware was still in great shape, I did not want to replace the whole assembly. Finding these parts were the perfect solution. They were affordable, relatively easy to install and has made this guitar a perfectly functional and a valuable instrument again. The only feedback would be for Stew-Mac to have a video on Ebony installation as well. I was able to take pointers from the video supplied but the Ebony installation is different, since they are basically wood tuners versus the plastic ones which can be pressure fitted with heat.
