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.

Not for "vintage"

By
(Customer's Reviews)


These (white) buttons are made of some modern vinyl/ABS construction material which CAN - NOT - BE - MELTED - ONTO - THE - SHAFT in the traditional way. The traditional ("vintage") way is to heat the buttons in boiling water then press them onto a heated shaft..This stuff LAUGHS at the boling point, my friend, and if you heated the old vintage kluson shaft to hot enough to soften one of these things, the shaft would melt first....

Put new knobs on that thing

By
(Customer's Reviews)


These knobs look like the original vintage Kluson knobs. I was a little apprehensive to do the install but I watched the video and did it that way. I recommend using the video method and ordering an extra knob or two in case you goof one up. A good vise and patience are key elements. I got good results and they all crank fine and look original (cream color).
