The amber cap is exactly what gibson used on the original guitars back in the fifties. And yes, it has threads. I use these caps on all my historic reissue gibson guitars because the toggle caps that come with the historic reissue guitars today are light brown and not amber like the originals. These ARE Original Gibson parts. If you put these on other brand guitars you're obviously going to find an imperfect match for your guitar. If you want an original gibson toggle cap from the fifties (like your '59 les paul)... this is it! I love them and won't use anything else.

simple plastic threaded cap, but won't buy another one for my gibson toggle switch.
got a black toggle cap for my gibson 3-way toggle switch.
the switch is probably about 2-3 years old and takes a threaded cap.

these caps are threaded, but the threads don't start at the end of the cap. they start being threaded about 1/2 way into the cap. this resulted in the cap being to far down the shaft of the toggle switch and wouldn't allow me to move it. I had to cut the bottom 1/2 of the cap off (up to the threads) and reinstall. works fine now.

I'm assuming these might be more for older gibson switches? I'm not really sure.

If i need another one, i wouldn't get one of these. I would look for another threaded toggle that i wouldn't have to cut in half.
simple plastic. nothing fancy.
cheap, but i had to cut it in order for it to work.

Will Not Fit Epiphones!

      Comments about Gibson Toggle Switch Cap:

      Since couldn't find a specific toggle switch cap for Epiphone guitars, I wrongly assumed that the Gibson part would fit. It doesn't. Thanks for nothing! You folks could either A) Sell the Epiphone part; or B) Mention in the write-up for this that it does NOT fit Epiphone guitars.

      Perfect Fit

      By Alan-FR6Ie

      from Delta, CO

      Comments about Gibson Toggle Switch Cap:

      It may be one of the more pricey alternatives available but it comes with that Gibson look and quality so to me that's a good value.It seems there is a lot of misinformation about this particular product. It absolutely is threaded, as are all Gibson LPs regardless of their year. It does seem this cap is incompatible with Epiphone LPs which I imagine is where so much of this confusion comes from. You can rest assured however that it will fit just fine on your Gibby.

      This is not for new Guitars

      Comments about Gibson Toggle Switch Cap:

      Buyer beware this replacement cap is not for Gibson and Epi guitars made in the last decade as they started using different toggle switches. The new switches have caps that thread on, but this cap is made to snap on and has a wider base like the one on the original toggle switches.

      White Toggle Switch Cap

      By Michael Pham

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Gibson Toggle Switch Cap:

      I was really disappointed that it did not fit my 2010 Gibson Les Paul Studio. The toggle cap was way

      too wide to fit onto the pickup selector switch.
      Too pricey for just one toggle cap.

                          Got the amber to replace a broken toggle on a '70s Les Paul. Fits perfectly though it is REALLY amber. Like almost bright amber. Not subtle coloring at all. However, it fits, it works, I'll get used to it. But I was a little taken aback.

                                I have a 2011 Gibson Les Paul Studio. It goes on, but the threads are set back further than the originals. So it goes down too far and does not allow the toggle to move in any direction. I contacted Gibson and was told these are the only caps being produced currently. The retro / vintage ones look like they may work, however they cost a lot more and do not come in black.
