I misplaced the bumblebee caps I took out of my 2011 R8. Because I'm a mental patient and my OCD kicks in if I misplace anything original from my guitars I was wondering if anyone had a set they didn't use I could buy for a reasonable price. The fact that Gibson charges $100 for these aftermarket is absolutely insane. Gotta be a few people with modded historics who don't need/want the bb caps they took out. email at dbone15@me.com

Thanks.

- Great to see member help each other! Is it an "Urban legend that look a like bumblebee caps were installed earlier. I certainly hope so.
- Are all bumblebee caps same value or do they came in 0.15 mY; 0.022 and 0.047?

I have a pair of 1950's bumblebee caps if you have any interest. Probably work out fair price. Both are .022 and 400v.

aah man, I just gave mine to my luthier because I had no use for them...
I'd have given them to you for free...

I missed that as others did, too. If so old why did it pop up today? If that old it should drop off, I would think.
