  TruVintage Exact Replica '50's Gibson ABR-1 Thumbwheels And Posts (NEW PRODUCT AND READY TO SHIP!!)
(Item#118) MGL is excited to announce a partnership with CreamTone in our new “TruVintage” line of parts. The parts will be available on my site and also the new site of truvintage.com which will launch soon. The first project we decided on and have been working on for the last few months are exact replica ‘50’s Gibson ABR-1 bridge thumbwheels and posts. There are a number of reissue thumbwheels on the market that are somewhat close but none are correct. One of the main reasons is that the exact knurling tool that was used for the original '50's thumbwheels is no longer in use. We had a machine shop take detailed measurements and inspect every detail on an original set of ‘50’s thumbwheels I sent them. After multiple attempts to duplicate the knurl pattern we were told the only way to get it exact would be to order a custom made knurling tool so we did. Once a small number of wheels were done and nickel plated we were sent some prototypes for approval. Everything looked dead on and we approved production. The thumbwheels and posts are available in 2 versions, NOS(new and shiny) & aged. (wheels & posts are nickel plated brass) (special thanks to Charlie Daughtry for providing detailed  thumbwheel photos from one of his Bursts for comparison) We sent a set to Charlie once they were done and his simple reply was "Damn....they are extraordinary!” Made in the USA as are all TruVintage parts. (Shipping will be $7.15 for Priority 2nd Day Mail) (NOTE: Since 2009 the thumbwheels Gibson has been using are made from steel. Correct brass will have a warmer tone)
$40.00 (NOS) $45.00 (Aged)

  TruVintage - Dave Johnson Replica Burst Guard For 2009 & Newer Historic Reissue LP's
(Item#151) TruVintage - Dave Johnson replica Burst guard, Dave and I have been working on this for a while and they have been used on the last few guitars that we have done, Dave has a Burst guard at his shop and we also got scans from Frank Pine of his original guard, other than the difference in the pickup spacing between original '50's LP's and Historics the other thing we found was that the outer line of the guard was fairly different and the real guards are actually smaller than the reissues. Then there's the gap at the neck pickup ring and the radius of the corners that are more open. So Dave has made a template with the Historic pickup spacing and the rest of the guard shape and lines exact to an original. There are guards available with the gap at the neck pickup ring but none that I know of that have the outer shape correct as most have the Historic shape. Take a look at the last 2 pictures. I put tape around the edges of a Historic guard and then put our new guard on top and screwed them together. You can easily see the purple tape showing the difference in the cut. I've posted pictures of a few of the guitars we've done to see the guard installed. The guards will be offered in: NOS - $69.00, lightly aged - $79.00, heavy aged - $89.00 and heavy aged w/ pick wear - $99.00. The lightly aged looks good on stock VOS guitars, lightly aged Murphy and Makeover guitars. Guitars with more extreme aging need the heavy aged guard. Guards are for 2009 and later guitars. (at some point Dave will make a template for 1999-2008 guitars) Shipping will be $7.15 for Priority Flat Rate Mail. I'VE GOT A FEW OF THESE GUARDS AVAILABLE WITHOUT THE GAP AT THE NECK PICKUP RING. (NOTE: THESE ARE AGED ONE AT A TIME AND EACH ONE WILL BE A LITTLE DIFFERENT)
$69.00 NOS, $79.00 Aged, $89.00 Heavy Aged
