Help finding a part

Anyone know where I might be able to find one of these?



I tried the usual WD, All parts, etc. I found 1 place that sells them, but they want $100 for one.

I remember seeing that on eBay awhile back. Not sure if they were authentic though.

Re: Help finding a part

$100 for a piece of plastic? I hate to state the obvious but, have you called Gibson? I can't understand why someone would charge that much for that little piece of plastic.
