Here’s a pic of a TV Jones filtertron to Gibson HB adapter ring, plus a pic of the issue I forgot where some import HB ring mounts are not US standard screw spacing, instead being wider spaced. The cream ring is an import that’s spaced the same as an import LP HB ring mount but not the same as the US Explorer HB mount it’s pictured above.
The TV Ones ring is US standard spaced so may be a little off on an import body.

In case you get stuck with a HB routed body you can get a HB ring that fits a Filtertron from TV Jones, Sweetwater and others have the ring for $6.
Also, real Gretch filtertrons sell for like $40 used because the TV Jones version is 10% better and we all need that extra 10% unless we're on a low budget.
I will most definitely keep that in mind!
