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 fit

By

Verified Buyer


Acquired a double-neck guitar my father made back in 1948. The guitar has been in storage for the past 36 years but still in pristine condition except for three tuner knobs that were dried out and brittle. Ordered new ones from StewMac, they arrived within two days and match the others perfectly. Great service and good products!

Two of the knobs on my recently acquired guitar broke while I was restringing it so I wanted replacements in a hurry. The ones from StewMac arrived in 3 days, fit perfectly and were inexpensive. I am very pleased with both the knobs and the service.

do it like stewmac's video example...

I don't have a drill press, I installed my knobs by boiling them and free-hand pressing them onto the tuner shafts. It turns out these knobs are made of a plastic that doesn't soften up much when boiled. My knobs all have stress marks on them from when I shoved them onto the shafts. These knobs should be drilled to to the proper size like the guy in the stewmac example video shows...

I’m doing a rebuild on a Gibson Les Paul and this replacement part fit and operated as it was listed.
Highly recommend Stew Mac for the genuine parts you need !!!

Perfect for Vintage Gibson

By

Verified Buyer


I bought the cream knobs to replace the crumbling knobs on an old Gibson archtop. I had to use a 1/8 inch bit to enlarge the holes slightly. I recommend ordering a couple extra. If you don't get the holes drilled out large enough, the knobs will start to split when you force them on with a vice. It took me some trial and error, but I am very pleased with the results.

Great replacments

I used these on a '55 Supro Supreme lap steel whose knobs were cracked and rotting off. I followed the video instructions carefully. I used a portable drill press, the small StewMac shop vice to hold the knobs and drilled them out slightly as Dan Erlewine suggested in the video. Follow the rest of the video instructions and you'll be fine. Buying a couple extra is a good idea just in case...

Using the video tutorial, installation was a breeze. Replaced the buttons on a 1947 Gibson A40 perfectly!
