The ring is good quality and looks great. The lettering is a nice gold and it fit perfectly. Very happy with my purchase
In terms of vintage replacement, not bad for the money. Much better than what Gibson supplies with their R7's and earlier. The condensed font style is quite close to the 50's original switch plates. Would like to see it a slightly deeper emboss on the gold foil stamp, but close enough for this price level. The diameter, thickness, and plastic color are good. If you are using as a replacement for replica goldtop Les Paul's, the inside diameter (.500") is made for the collared switch nut which came later in '58 forward. Earlier goldtops would require about .461 dia. which makes it harder to center using a top nut instead of collared. They could drop the self-adhesive backing if you are a vintage enthusiast. If you're not, that feature is not a bad one.
I purchased this for my 2014 Epiphone Les Paul Traditional Pro II. Removing the original plate was a pain, but with the adhesive backing on this one, install was a breeze. It fits perfectly and the ivory color is spot on! My only issue, albeit a minor one, is that the font could've been a bit more period correct. Other than that, great product!
If you start looking for a NON-PINK, light colored ivory switch ring, you will be surprised at how hard they are to find. Yay, Philly, woo hoo! Thanks for providing this. It's good! Maybe the writing is a little thinner than what was on my Gibson ring, but getting rid of that awful brown one I had on a blue guitar makes the switch to this one a no-brainer. So, I got it, and lo and behold, it's got adhesive on the back to keep it from twisting around sideways! Cool beans! You have to be really careful putting it on, because you don't get more than one or two chances to get it just right. Bottom line, I'm happy.
