    I recently purchased an Epiphone Les Paul Custom Pro. I noticed that the bridge pickup ring did not meet flush with the top of the body. Didn’t think much of it so I left it alone.
    I noticed the other day a small crack working it’s way up the side of the ring. It looks like the uneven stresses did the trick. It’s not broken yet but I’m thinking it’s a matter of time.
    To avoid having to replace them more than once I wanna see if anyone makes a metal version that fits easily on the epiphones. I see Gibson types online but I imagine they may not be a direct fit for my guitar.
    Black or gold would be best, thanks!

    The surface texture looks cool, maybe too cool for me.

    I want something smooth like the kind the guitar came with.

    Any other metal rings out there?

    Check out Amazon. Lots of marketplace sellers have them for Epiphones and other imports and no, they're not all in China. Amazon even fulfills some.

    I checked eBay, Amazon, and google. I just thought maybe I was missing something.
    Most of the metal rings are for flat top guitars or Gibson’s.

    Thanks for that link . Those look Guykers look like they’d work.
