    Anyone tried 59parts?

    I had a small accident with one of the pickup rings (neck) on my R8 and I would like to replace it with something more "accurate" to a genuine M69. I am aware of DMC, Throbak & Montreux but I cannot afford their prices. I don't mind buying stock Gibson Historic rings but I also stumbled at a site called 59parts. They seem to carry almost everything for a decent upgrade (for those interested):

    Has anyone tried their stuff?

    I've never used 59 parts, have you looked at creamtone? They may have rings.

    Those are Gibson Historic parts.

    I also ordered aged knobs for my R4 Jaeger project. Very happy with them.

    I have use it for a truss rod cover. Great aging and relic work on Gibson parts, but not an historic one!

    So it seems that they are stock Gibson parts which are aged by 59parts.
