The toggle switch rings for 50s Specials either seem to be either rubber (hard to find) or a black toggle ring with yellow printed lettering. All I can find are embossed gold toggle rings. Haven’t seen a repro like this (yellow non-embossed) that I can find. Anyone else?

Thanks, close but still gold screening as opposed to something yellow or non-metallic.

Hmm...yeah I've only seen white or gold text, not yellow. Shouldn't be too difficult to darken the white text to taste. I just checked and my '57 RI LP Jr has the white text so it also has toggle switch ring envy of the actual 50s models.

Way back in the late 60's I had a '55 Special that had the rubber one. But it is actually a grommet that fits in a much bigger hole. I don't know when they used them, or why.
