The Gibson OEM part is better than any I have bought from the Far East. It also comes with screws which the others often don't.
I bought this for a 2015 SG just to see what it would look like with the cream surrounds as opposed to the black originals. Being an OEM part the colour matches the neck binding perfectly and an okey-cokey part would stand out like a sore thumb.
As these are not ridiculously over-priced I think they are a better buy than a Chinese copy.
This humbucker frame is sitting happily around my pickup. My guitar is a Westbury. It has double horns like an SG but the top horn is further forward, a pair of creme-ish (actually ranging between tan and dark brown; they're so disgustingly dirty after 22 years of play that they are likely to need exorcised rather than cleaned) Dimarzio Humbuckers and has been stripped down to it's natural wood and finished with some kind of protective matt finish. The Gibson Humbucker Frames' colour goes very well with the natural wood and the pickups. The Frame is solid enough and I have no complaints about the quality.
