Toggle Washer on LP Trad 2012 Pinkish Hue Help.
I found a similar post a while back but forgot to bookmark it, and I can't find the post now after searching for a bit.
I have noticed, as I am sure others of you have also noticed...that the new stock cream plastics on newer (2012) Les Paul Traditionals are great and do not have that "pinkish" hue that most of us seem to dislike.
The pickguard and pickup rings seem to have a very nice cream color. But.....the toggle switch washer is the only piece of plastic that has that pinkish hue on my 2012 Ice Tea Traditional. Its hard to pick it up in a picture but I posted one below just for reference.
I am simply wanting the color hue of the toggle washer to match the better color hue of the pickguard and the pickup rings.
Has anyone else just switched out the toggle washer and got a pretty much exact match to the pickguard and rings?? If so, where did you get it?? I ordered one from Sweetwater (Gibson Pure) and it still had that pinkish hue to it.
Any ideas where to get a good matching one at? I want a cream one with the gold print w/ the same font....just without the pink.
Photo: Pickguard and Pickup rings have a nice cream color to it with no pink to them. The toggle washer looks like the older cream plastics with that pink tone to it. (side note...I dont care about anything matching the binding and I do not want to change out the pickguard and rings as I like the color tone of them.

My 2012 traditional had a pinkish switch washer too. I'd just pick up a historic spec washer. Those have true cream color.
