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.

One great turn deserves another!

I have a 25+ year old guitar that was my first low cost beginner guitar. I finally got around to seriously start learning to play about a year ago. The tuner knobs which were plastic have started to crack and fall off. I could not find the exact same knobs anywhere nor the same replacement tuner gears since the center to center spacings on the string pegs are non-standard. I bought these Vintage style Tuner knobs which closely matched the tuner knob drive shaft dimensions and they fit on nicely and did the job. Make sure you understand the drive shaft configuration (round or rectangular) and dimensions of the hole or rectangle to match with the available knob choices. Delivered quickly. This was my first order with StewMac and I am very satisfied with my purchase and purchase experience.

I really like these cream colored plastic knobs. I wanted a different look on some Grover StaTite tuners and these worked great for me.

Great product, for a not so simple procedure.

I bought these ebony tuner knobs to replace some nearly non-existent knobs on a pair of Kluson tuners from my granpa's old lap steel that was recently given to me. They will look very nice with the guitar once I can finally get them on. All the videos online make this look like such an easy task, but it is not. I broke two in the process, without having successfully gotten any on the tuners. This fault lies entirely on myself. Thinking about just taking them in to a professional to be put on. I would definitely recommend these knobs for a project, though.
