So whats the deal with washburn and their pick-up rings man?

I've got black one's on my idol and wanted to change to cream colored ones, you know kinda pimp up my guitar blah blah. I've measured this thing and went looking thought I found something at mojotone bought it and duuh it wont fit! screw holes wont line up everything else is fine...Then I went for gibson rings and duuuh again no fitty with the screws not lining up? anyone know where I can find proper replacement rings? I really dont want to drill new holes or mess anything up :(

I was wondering the same thing.  I've got cream colored ones and wanted black ones.

I'd trade you, but I already painted them semi-gloss black to see how it would look :P

Hm my idol is a WI26 Joe Throman Indonesia made definitely import. I know it's not top of the line blah but I got a good deal on the thing and for my untrained eyes it's damn good quality at that! I love the thing! So hmm I guessing its metric measurements. Question is where do I buy rings? I got some the mojotone ones from USA and I got Gibson from England and STILL nothing fits right! I'm fed up! :(

epiphone rings should fit as they should be metric.

Why not post the measurements you need. It'd be useful to know the external size of the ring and the distance between screw holes.

Where do you live?
