I just upgraded the hardware of my 2013 R8

Pickguard and Rings are Art of Aging.
Pickupcovers are Montreux.

I took those photos for a facebook discussion that was going on about a ring being sold for 6K at ebay. WIZZ's are identical.

This is about all I am doing to my 2004 R8 that I've had since new... maybe replace poker chip at some point and a nylon nut from a blank that I have when my inevitable refret and plek happens in next year or so.

The Vintage Haven '59 switch ring is a good match to a Mojoaxe guard.
Photo also shows two Vintage Haven M69s. one Cream aged and one Bone NOS.

Anyone ever weight their pickup covers (Reissue Line)?
I have the doubt and I decided to search if anyone has the answer.
Could someone tell me the exactly weight of the pair of pickups cover (Reissue line) ?
Thank You.

Original covers won't all weigh the same, as the hand grinding/buffing/polishing removes material (such as around the corners and around the pole piece holes, creating the "dimples") but they will still weigh more than modern covers because they are thicker around the perimeter and cut off flat/square at the base, rather than stretched/flanged out and broken off. The original deep-draw process is also slower and less aggressive than how they are made now, resulting in the newer covers being thinner.
