    Philadelphia Luthier Tools sells them but they only do black or white lettering, no gold or silver. Search "custom toggle switch" on ebay and it should be one of the first results or go to their site.

    I got one for my LPC from Rhythm :: Trouble.
    $7.99.
    No complaints.

    But Philadelphia Luthier Tools is the best, most helpful online store I have ever dealt with.

    I've ordered a few from Philly luthier parts and was always happy with them.

    Be mindful that they have a "matte" surface, not glossy like a stock ring. I'm not sure if it could be buffed to a gloss without damaging it.

    Personally though, I don't mind the matte finish. This one looks positively bad-ass on my GT (please excuse the crap Iphone pic):

    Also, I ordered a couple of ones that say "Smooth" and "Crunchy" (like peanut butter lol.) which have yet to find homes. Not enough guits with creme plastics.

    I've made a couple of my own.

    Here's the "battle axe" chip (pewter) I made for my SG

    And here's the "Sleeping Dragon" chip (also pewter) that I fashioned for my friends LP:

    To be honest, I hate the plastic poker chips. To me, they look a bit tacky. So I always look for something cool to replace them with.

    I got mine from Rhythm Trouble also, and it is perfect. But I read that they fell behind on orders, pissed off alot of customers, and eventually went out of business.

    The pickups they sell are quite good. Depends on your needs.

    I always experiment with pups. So I order bigger quantities.

    How about them sending it to you in an envelope?

    I managed to get some Rhythm/Trouble rings when I ordered a new pick guard for my Explorer!

    They're really good quality but they seem slightly smaller than the Epiphone stock ones so some of the text gets covered by the washer.

    I saw one somewhere, with "Phase" and "Stun" on it....appealed to the Trekkie in me, but never bought one
