Countless and endless updates still keep them getting better and better.....Uneven legs, flash, drooling, warp, hardness and color. These features found on now discontinued legendary pick-up ring "M-69" reflect the fuzziness of '50s molding technology.
Because modern molding tends to be too accurate, special fine tuning was made to padding, thinning (to prevent warping), undercut (for easier ejecting of molded parts), weld line (to avoid product cracking), and gate (injection point) setting in order to simulate the looseness of the old times. This product is not just a copy, it is the synthesis of manufacturing process analysis and molding experts’ craftsmanship. State-of-the-art technology and passion were poured into producing this calculated looseness and ‘worn-out’ looks.
Plastic pellets used as material also reproduce color, hardness and mass of the original. Then, a blending expert added some fine tuning, so subtle modern instruments cannot measure. Set of 2 Rings (Neck and Bridge)
Our M69' Rings are matched to org. near Mint Condition 1959' Gibson Les Paul Rings, lot of aftermarket Rings have different colors, some are too creamy and a lot of those are too light in color, in case of the builders compared color with rings that "bleached" out over the years in case of environmental influences are important. Also the CAB material tends to gas out and changing color.
