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.

I knew that these were not a drop in fit. The posts I was installing them on were a little smaller in diameter but thicker across the flat. I heated them first in boiling water and then they went on with a nice press, with the needed depth of engagement.

Found My Missing Part!

By

Verified Buyer


I have a 1965 Gibson acoustic guitar and was told by my local music store that they were unable to repair it because the tuner knob was broken and they couldn't find a replacement. I took the guitar home, Googled vintage tuner knobs and clicked on your website where I immediately found the part I needed.

I repaired the guitar myself and now it is in perfect working order! Thank you for providing my missing part. It matches the other knobs perfectly and is working great!!

I had multiple sets of vintage tuning machines with knobs that had crumbled and broke off. Just use a mini torch to slightly warm the shafts and these slide right on!

Old knobs were broken off or cracked. Tried replacing the tuners but the holes don't line up and drilling was a nasty job. Looked up replacing just the knobs. Would have been nice to get instructions with knobs but Youtube shows exactly what to do. Soldering iron, heavy glove and 10 minutes and the new knobs went on just fine. Look great and work well.

Order was received quickly (2 days). I especially appreciate StewMac's "how to" video library that covers most of their products. The videos give me the confidence I need to attempt the projects I want to do on my instruments.
