    ThroBak M-69 Rings are Here!

    Another great addition to the ThroBak product line, Butyrate M-69 rings! These are 100% ThroBak made here in the USA to vintage specs.. These will NOT break guaranteed! Correct injection mold gate and material assures no breaking. The tooling was hand done in Kalamazoo and with and eye on copying all of the vintage details and "flaws" of the vintage rings. Available in Bone, Cream and black to cover all the vintage tints. Get with different levels of aging. Check them out on the ThroBak web site!

    These are the best rings I've ever seen/used. Everyone else says how accurate their rings are...ah, em...not! The Throbak's are the ones I've found to be exactly like the ones Gibson made!

    Ive been looking for black rings for a long while and the price is right. I might grab a set of these after payday, just as soon as Christmas fades

    Ordered a set on Saturday! I have an older set of OTPs that are gassing out and damaging the finish on my goldtop.

    I can't tell you how realistic these rings are. The best!

    imo there should be an even lighter color offered ...ivory.

    I actually considered calling the bone color vintage ivory. The bone and cream colors I had made are matched to the lightest (bone) and darkest (cream) extremes of vintage plastic.

    thanks but all i'm saying is the originals on my guitar are closer to being white than the bone color shown ..but then again, they've had very little exposure over the last 50+ years.
