    Lonnie saw my pic of the pick guard and noticed the small gap around the pup rings. He contacted me and offered a new one at no charge. I haven't had a chance to put it on yet, but I will soon... You just don't get service and attention to detail like that anywhere else.

    Thanks again Lonnie!! :thumb: 1st class guy! :cool:

    Got a set of A3 Deluxe pickups being done now. A bridge and 2 neck for a three pickup LP. Can't wait to check 'em out. Lonnie also made me a cream batwing pickguard for my SG and it looks fab!

    You won't be disappointed, lonnie partnered with a master winder and their pickups are very thick and well balanced, great sounding pickups.

    My guard, rings, jack plate and poker chip will be arriving within the week for my newly acquired LP studio vintage mahogany. Since I'm in Canada, and exchange rate is horrendous, I ordered a $2 butterscotch switch tip and simply sanded the mold line down and buffed and polished it with the polishing kit that came with my Red Bear pick. Looks great and didn't spend $30+ CAD to get it. If I had been in the US, I would have ordered a CT tip since they look awesome.

    That's great, I do the same thing to all my switch tips. I sand them and age them myself. It sucks if you try to do that to a bridge, for example, and mess it up. But if I mess up a switch tip it's only going to cost me a couple of bucks. I appreciate companies that sell aged items, but I've always customized my own switch tips and they all look great... plus saved me tons of money.

    Look fantastic ABCarlson!!

    Oh, not to derail the thread or take love away from Creamtone (I doubt my tips will ever look as good as Creamtone's) but one quick tip when you are aging your switch tip is to use a Q-tip to hold the tip while you are sanding. It makes it much easier to deal with while you are working on it.

    Just take a little bit of the cotton off of the end and just screw it on, it won't move. Just be sure not to leave any cotton inside of the tip or break the end of the Q-tip off inside the tip when you are done.

    Looks incredible!!

    I also see that you are one of the first individuals to receive their new 59 authentic pick guards, I'm waiting for mine to come in when he sends me my custom back!

    Not even sure what that means. Is that a new pick guard design from CT?

    They recently resigned their pickguard line based on an original burst pickguard that they got their hands on, the reason I know is because I bought one in the middle of the transition and Lonnie asked me if I wanted their old style cut or their new 59 authentic cut. The big giveaway is the gap under the neck pickup, this is seem on many bursts and also the wing of the pickguard is a tiny bit different than their old one.

    I'm anxiously waiting for mine to come in along with my custom

    Have a cool little project on the way soon so I ended up pulling the trigger on a bunch of creamtone stuff. I have pickups, historic rings and a PG at home already from other projects but I went full out and got a harness, an aged set hardware set (with conversion bushings) and some knobs as well.


    I have heard good things about these guys so I wanted to see what the fuss was about. From what I have seen I will probably be very pleased :fingersx:

    The knobs finished this one off. I was very appreciative of the customer service and high quality.

    Well, a certain package has cleared customs.



    I'm hoping to feel pretty cream-y soon. :cheers:


    PS: that LP is GORGEOUS cnote.
