Other than having them custom fabricated by Frets on the Net or Armadillo, has anyone found a supplier for metal TV Jones rings like this?
I've had no luck so far...thanks!

I have a pair of the Baldwin style metal rings if you're interested. They're chrome, stamped type of construction, and a larger footprint than the plastic rings. Find a pic of a Baldwin era Gretsch and you can see what they look like. I bought them years ago from Duke Kramer and they've never been used. Drop me an email or PM if you're interested.
Another thought - James Trussart makes rings for his guitars that are pretty similar to what you're showing. Last time I checked, they would sell them separately.

Thos Baldwin rings look cool!
I'm really looking to source these on a regular basis, so the Trussart idea is a great one.
I also put a call into Allparts to see whther they've considered offering something like this.
Ideally, the ring would be a direct swap for the Allparts 0741-010 (http://www.allparts.com/Humbucking-Pickup-Rings-Flat-Chrome-p/pc-0741-010.htm)
Something to think about...
