    2016 Gibson LPR 8 S neck pickup ring question (non tapered)


    I got a 2016 LPR 8, which has a neck pickup ring that's not tapered.
    I'll explain. Since LP tops aren't flat, all pickup rings are thicker at the side of the bridge. This one is the same hight all around.
    When I bought it, I thought it was part of the special edition (LPR 8 'S' on the COA), but can't find any other LP with these specs.
    I bought it 2nd hand, has all paperwork, COA and hangtag from the shop. All looks, feels, smells, sounds as it should, but it looks weird. The color of the plastic matches the pickguard and if someone was trying to change the plastic, it's easier to find the tapered versions...

    Problem solved: the ring was sanded down.
    I unscrewed them and it was obvious: the original ring had been sanded down. I should have tried it before asking
