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 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.

Nice looking knobs but too small for my Les Paul. Maybe I’ll put on my Strat.

These knobs work great and installing was easy after watching Dan's video, I couldn't done it without the help. I just wished they came with an antiqued finish...

Worked fine

I had to replace a tuning knob on a 1946 Gibson BR-6 lap steel guitar.

This worked great with just a little Dremel modification. It is larger than the original, but unless you knew it was replaced, I doubt you would notice it.
