I wanted to know with a quick glance just how much pickup blending was going on with my new blend pot that I got from Stew Mac for my Gibson/Epiphone Nouveau Spotlight upgrade project. I bought another black Abalone topped knob to match the volume and tone ones I already had on it for the blend pot. I mounted the indicator ring under the knob so the center detent lines the set screw up with the indicator. Then I highlighted the setscrew with some bright orange paint so I can see at a glance how much blend is there. SWEET!
The diameter is big for potentiometers, hard place well but have awesome quality, very happy with the product.
Replace original pot washer with these & mount them directly against guitar body for secure & proper fit. Once tightened they won't move around.
These aren't something everyone needs, but they add a sweet look and help when you look down and can focus fast on where your settings are. They are VERY easy to install.
Installing the knob points on my 335, I resolved the problems of balance of volume between pickups
I am always a bit wary of buying over the internet, and have been "burned" a few times. Not this time! They were a high quality item at a good price and were delivered in a record time. They slotted straight on with no problems. Even an amateur like me couldn't go wrong !!!
This product is very expensive - $8 for four washers. But very well spent eight bucks for that vintage look. The point is, there is no point: The vintage original washers were pointy, almost to the point of hurting, and these new ones are rounded and safer. Some filing and plating may be required to attain the true vintage look -- I imagine that this is the element customers of this produt are looking for. Thanks StewMac for carrying such comprehensive mix.
They work. No problems finding my knob position. One thing I dislike is that the hole in them is a bit big and I had some trouble positioning it but it worked out in the end.
Perfect use in my Gibson Flying V68.
Most guys hate these things but I have always found them helpfull when used with the vintage style knobs
