Not a negative review, but know that they are sightly wider than Gibson rings, and a '17 and later Gibson USA Les Paul pickguard (or the Creamtone version) will not fit without a lot of filing (I chose to remove these rings).
The bottom edge also wasn't very clean in spots,, would need some final sanding to look their best. But if you don't use a pickguard and know that the old ones started out this white, too, they are a good choice for $16.
I recently acquired an early Norlin years LP with a broken neck ring and a severely shaved down bridge ring that I installed these on. I also have a 2016 custom shop LP with Gibson's latest "Most Accurate" rings and a early 90's LP with a set of Cream Tone repro rings.. These rings from Philly Luthier are perfect, virtually identical to the much more pricey others.
I am going to write one more time, ordered another set for a 3 pickup les paul. Had to actually order 2 sets but the rings looked exactly the same and also matched the earlier set exactly also. So don't worry if you are trying to match. These are exactly the color of milk so you know just what you are getting. These are outstanding.
Very nice rings. Quite whitish. Perfect fit on both Gibson and Epiphone. Highly recomended.
These rings are the best bang for the buck out there. I have rings from other makers over 100.00 more per set. The outside appearance is just as good with a better color. I will replace most of my more expensive sets with these.
These are beautiful. The color is Milk colored. Just what I was looking for.
Inexpensive butyrate M69 rings, actually not too bad. Not going to fool a vintage Gibson expert, but they aren't bad especially for $16! I gave it 5 stars for bang for buck value. I have some repro M69 rings I paid much more for that really are not a whole lot better.
