Top Hat Bell Knob

About This Item

Compact bell-shaped guitar knobs for Gibson® guitars.

Choose knobs to press-fit onto fine (CTS) or coarse (Alpha) knurled control pot shafts.
Sold individually.

Black: Clear plastic with black painted bottom and white numerals
Gold: Clear plastic with gold painted bottom and white numerals
Amber: Amber plastic with gold painted bottom and white numerals

Check your control pot shafts before you order!
Almost all press-on knobs that fit coarse-knurled 18-spline pot shafts (such as Alpha) won't fit fine-knurled 24-spline shafts (such as CTS), and vice versa.

Bell top knobs

Could have been a little deeper inside center cavity. Adjusted pots as low as possible...still, a touch too high above the pickguard....other than that, very nice...work very well.

Looks good

They look great, used them on a Les Paul Studio. It takes some work to get them on but good replacement knobs.

Nice and durable

I bought 4 gold knobs from StewMac in 2003 and they’re as good as new! They’ve been on two different guitars and they added a custom touch with high quality.

The hole is WAY too small!

By

Verified Buyer


Yes, they look great -- but don't expect to just slip them on. Mine are at least .5mm too small. It's going to require a lot more work than just a little filing.. II'll probably need to drill out the hole.
My advice is to pay the extra money for the Gibson brand knobs.

Great, but difficult to install

By

Verified Buyer


I bought a set of black knobs for CTS pots (both regular and push-pull, also bought from StewMac). As several others have said, the knobs were very difficult to push on, to the point that I was worried about damaging the pots. A little filing of the inside of the knob and squeezing of the split pot shaft took care of the problem, but one shouldn't have to do that with products that are explicitly advertised as compatible. Still, once installed, they do look great.

Better than Gibson

By

Verified Buyer


StewMac's knobs are better than the Gibson brand knobs I used to pay out the nose for. They are my go-to for fine-knurled pots.
