Chrome Pick-up rings
by ThomasBrunkard on 2013-01-21 08:24:40

I see some of you guys have updated the pickups in your JTV-59s.  Has anyone changed the pickup rings?  I'd love to put some chrome ones on mine to bring up the aesthetics on stage a touch.  Anyone ever changed these and where did you get yours?   I'll measure mine and try out some from Stew Mac but it'd be great to see if anyone has sized this already as there are variables in arch radius etc.

Something like this:

Thanks in advance!

Please post a picture when you get them on there.
I'm curious to see how it looks!

I'm convinced it'll look magnificent.  I'm not going to get covers as I'd probably have to wax seal em.  Just don't know about the sizing yet and even how to measure.

The one you linked is not arch bottom. The ones on the jtv-59 are.
