Yes I'm that anal about pickup rings. I'm looking for the ones that they use on Jackson Custom Shop models and, apparantly, ESP customs as well. They're dark grey matte plastic:

Help me SSO-Kenobi! You're my only hope!

Sorry mods, should've been in "Pickups, Electronics & General Tech". Could you move this?

Without seeing them in person, I don't necessarily think they are dark grey, I think they are just a textured matte black.

Like this satin black guitar with a gloss black stripe. It's just how the reflected light is diffused.

fretsonthenet.com has a satin black plastic he offers for pickup rings and other parts, and offers a shit-load of customization options and made-to-fit retrofit shapes/sizes:

What you call anal I call normal. Pick up rings are to a guitar as shoes are to a man....announce to all the world you've arrived.

... big lol on the "Help me SSO-Kenobi..."... thanks for that.

... regarding your quest, I cannot help, sorry... have you tried Seymour Duncan, it looks like both of those guitars are loaded with them, so... maybe?

Hell you're probably right:


But ofcourse sold out and can't find them anywhere -_- at least I'm a bit closer to finding them. Otherwise I'll go to fretsonthenet.

Thanks everyone!

*edit* found them and ordered!

These are infinitely cooler than glossy rings. You have every right to be picky about them.

Also, god that Nosfersatu Eclipse is so fucking sick! Chalk that up to something I would never pay the asking price for, but would absolutely love to own.

Unpopular opinion: I actually PREFER Pickup rings on my guitars :erk:
I don’t usually care one way or the other. I think direct mount looks bad on some, and rings look bad on others. It’s definitely circumstantial.
I prefer rings on flat top guitars vs. super carved or radiused tops like ESP MHs.
