    Hi,
    I' m looking for a set of M-69 Humbuckers rings, I bought a set at Creamtone before but now they are no more available.

    Do you know where I can buy those HBs rings?

    I' ve read that DiMarzio rings have de same dimensions than M-69, is it true?

    Thanks !

    Are you refereing to the thicker rings (i.e. vintage hight)?

    If so, I have a set of Dimarzio rings on my LP Classic, and they are vintage-spec.

    A few years back I put a set of DiMarzio rings on my 2011 Trad Plus. They're the same height the rings on my R8.

    Yup, I want something that looks similar but I don't really care if it has the very right smell and sound when dropped. I know the material might matter for a les paul where it needs to bend, but I need it as a replacement for a SG...
