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.

Perfect fix for crumbly 50s tuner buttons

These took more effort to push on than I expected. I heated the shaft and pushed them on, but I wish I had taken the tuners off the guitar and used a clamp or press to push them on. They work great though and look perfect!

Wrong size but generous treatment

These knobs were sent as replacements when some of my Sloane Waverly tuner knobs failed. They were the wrong size. I complained and a set of brand new tuners free of charge was sent instead. Outstanding service.

Excellent upgrade

I recently changed out the buttons on Grover Sta- Tite tuners with the switch from metal to ebony giving a great custom look . These buttons are finely crafted and polished.

Vintage Style Tuner Knobs

I did not know that I could get replacement tuner knobs, and thought I would have to purchase the whole tuner sets. I was very pleased with the replacement knobs that worked a treat. Thank you.

Ivoroid Buttons

I've purchased these buttons as well as the Ebony ones'. They have enhanced the look of the headstock remarkably..! I've used them on Strat & Tele Kluson style tuners as well. They can be a little tricky putting them on the shafts, but w/ a little prep & medium viscosity Superglue, they hold very well. An alternative to Waverly tuners at a fraction of the cost...

Not what I expected

These buttons were smaller and flimsier than I expected, and not a good match for the existing vintage knobs. I ended up ordering buttons from another company instead.

Tuner knobs for 1950 Martin Tiple

Ivoroid tuner knobs were used to replace rotting knobs. They needed to be drilled out to a snug heat-fit and have installed easily. The instrument is now back to normal, probably better than new! Thanks!

Not what I hoped for

Out the three items I ordered these Tuner knobs were the most eagerly anticipated. I assumed that the holes would match up with the tuning posts but that dont. Im not a luthier, but I really wanted to repair my classical guitar, so I dont have to use needle nose pliers to tune the G string.
