Single coil mounting ring

Post by m-m-m on Sun Jan 02, 2011 10:42 am

When my Dynasty was given to me in pieces, all of the electronics and associated hardware was missing. I want to drop a duncan lil '59 that I have laying around in there, but I'm gonna need to find a ring to mount it with. I realize that I could just get one of the chrome triangle shaped rings that are out there (stew-mac, etc.), but I figured that I'd try to find an original first. Would anyone happen to have a spare that they'd be willing to part with?

I found an alternative that looks cool and is low cost!

red mirror single coil adapter

I realize that I'll have to drill a couple of new holes, but at least it'll cover up the old ones.

Only $3 + $1 for shipping. Not bad! I'll post back if the quality sucks, but it looks like it'll be fine. Ordered a couple of red sparkle ones for my humbuckers as well.

Very funky! Perfect in the right situation.

Here's a mock-up (IOW, parts just placed in their spots)

You can't really tell from the pic, but the glitter/sparkle ones that are on the HBs don't look as good as I hoped with the mirror SC ring. I'm really happy with the parts otherwise. I'm wrote the guy and asked him if he'd be getting some mirrored HB rings anytime soon. Waiting for a response. I'll happily put the red glitter rings on my "graphite" Godin Detour.
