Epiphone elite pickup rings

Recommended Posts

I have a wine red epiphone elite les Paul custom and both pickup rings have split down the middle. Normal epi rings don't fit are the elite/elitist pickup rings the same as Gibson or are they unique to the elite/elitist range. Anyone got any ideas

Trips,

 

Welcome to the forum!!!

 

I do not know if Elite pickup mounting rings are unique. The only ones I am familiar with are normal Epiphone (metric) and Gibson (imperial)

Gibson's are slightly larger.

You need three accurate measurements. (length x width)

Outside...X" x X"

Inside...X" x X"

Hole to Hole...X" x X"

 

I'll measure my Gibson and get the measurements up as soon as possible.

I'm Bach...(Johann)

 

The Gibby rings on my L.P. are:

 

Outside to Outside: 3 15/32" x 1 3/4".... This could very slightly and probably would not matter.

 

Inside to Inside: 2 3/4" x 1 15/32"

 

Hole to Hole: 3 3/16" x 1 15/32"

 

If they are not the same as normal Epi rings and are not similar to the above dimensions then they are probably unique to the Elites.

 

Good luck,

 

Willy

If it makes you feel better, the ring on the neck pickup on my elite les paul custom split as well. I have not replaced it yet. The carve on the top of my elite is pretty dramatic.
