    Here are the gold witch hats and.....................................................
    found these today. GENUINE GIBSON Fiber headstock overlays.
    There is only two small problems with them. If you look at the side view of the Custom overlay you'll see that it has slightly curled. The diamond inlays in the center have lifted slightly because of the curl. I tried to heat the overlay and flatten it out but had no luck. So i was thinking of pulling the pearl Gibby logo and inlaying it into another piece of black fiber. The other problem is,both of them are made for the larger headstock. I'll figure out something to do with them! :wink:
