Plastic knobs thread onto our 3-way pickup selector toggle switches.
Knobs with 8-32 thread are for Switchcraft toggle switches,
standard in Gibson® and other American guitars.
Metric knobs with M4 x .7 thread are for metric toggle switches,
popular in guitars made outside the USA.
M3.5 x .6 thread knobs are for modern Epiphone switches.
Color-matching Cream Parts and Bindings
There have always been slight variations in the color of the cream plastic parts used on Gibson and other guitars. It's not uncommon to see brand new and vintage guitars with bindings, pickup rings, toggle switch rings and pickguards that don't perfectly match in color. We do our best to match all our cream products, but there's no absolute control from batch to batch, or from supplier to supplier.
