Good Knob; One Caveat

By

Verified Buyer


I bought these for an Epi '59 V reissue. It came with black bells to match the guard. They were fine but I sort of have a thing for amber bells. I pulled some off of one of my other guitars and they looked great against the gold hardware and antique natural korina finish. Only issue is, being an Epi they have the coarse knurling found on import pots. There are probably a million sites online where one could find these but I've had mixed results with less-than-reputable dealers (on top of not caring for giving personal info and card numbers). They aren't carried by a lot of vendors nd this was the best price I found. I got them and I have been happy with the results. They are an excellent fit and turned out looking great. Now the caveat. I want to say up front that I am happy with the results. Having said that, If you are super-finicky or obsessed with symmetry and perfection, a word of advice. When I bought these, they were stated as "in stock". That doesn't state how many are in stock. Shortly after ordering, I received an E-mail stating that one was on the way and the other two would ship in 2-3 weeks. No issue as I wasn't in a hurry. When the other two arrived, I I had them lying upside-down on the table together when I noticed they were distinctly different underneath. Amber bells are made of an amber plastic undersprayed with gold. The gold paint on the last two had a milky, matte appearance and the first was just gold. From the front it is nearly indistinguishable but I suspect the sheer amount of perfectionism found among guitarists would make this annoying to some. The other (more noticeable) issue is the central shaft. A bell knob has a central tunnel to receive the pot shaft that, when sprayed from the back shows up on the front side as a small dot. The dot on the first to arrive was noticeably smaller than the last two. Again, I am happy with the results. Most guitarists obsess over things that 99% of people will never notice. However, I realize that some would find this unacceptable for various reasons. My advice: obviously, these knobs are obtained in lots that are not identical. If, for whatever reason, you require a perfect match I would call ahead and make sure they are from the same lot.

The right knob.

By

Verified Buyer


I was working on a customers vintage Les Paul and one of the problems was one knob fell off and was lost. This guitar had extreme sentimental value, not to mention it's worth a pretty penny. I searched through all of my knobs and the ones I had were close, but not the right color, even my packaged Gibson knobs. My customer didn't want to replace all the knobs, wanting to keep it original as possible. So I saw these knobs on StewMac and took a chance that it would match. IT WAS PERFECT!! My customer is thrilled.And I'm a hero. I know it's just a knob, but it's always the little details that really make the customers happy.
