    Hello, can someone please help me find the "right" plastic im looking for. I don't know so much about the different brands.

    I have an Les Paul Standard 2013 Gold Top, currently with black parts. Is it even possible to install the historical pickup rings to the Standard?

    I will choose the MojoAxe PGUSA pickguard because of the pickup spacing and colour. Now i need some nice pickup rings.. I like the look when the rings are slightly brighter than the pickguard.

    I saw the Throbak rings combined with the Mojoaxe, and that looked really good! Until i saw the price.. But i will still consider those rings!

    But if anyone could recommend me some cheaper rings that would be great!

    Thanks.

    You might check out Wizz rings.

    .:: Wizz pickups ::.

    To answer your question, the Historic Rings should fit your USA guitar, but you might not like the color as much as some of the more expensive aftermarket ones.

    Ok, very nice rings.

    I have a strange feeling that if I don't get the Throbaks, i will always think about how the guitar would look if i had them.. Better save some more money and grab a pair of those right away.

    I really like the "Will not break guarantee" part.. I wonder if the same guarantee covers if i use them on my Standard. On the page it says that the rings are for LP Custom guitars.

    Well, better e-mail Jon when it's time to buy!

    The ThroBak no break guarantee applies to Standards as well.

    Ok, thank you!

    Wonder which colour of the rings would match the Mojoaxe guard best..
    I like when the rings are a little brighter than the pickguard. Hoping to place an order next week!

    I found the switch tip comparison above to be so useful, that I'm going to throw my collection into the mix...

    I like them. The green aging on the bottom is nice.
