To make sure you are ordering the correct knob for your guitar. Look at the underside of your knob and compare it with the one pictured. The difference would be how far the knob sits above the guitar body when its installed. Many vintage Gibson® guitars have knobs that sit about 1/8" to 1/4" above the body. Many new models (except Gibson® Historics) have knobs that sit flush with the body.

These are perfect replacements for the amber bell knobs that came on my Eastman. I was a bit nervous because the Eastman website says the guitars use CTS pots, and even though I had confirmed the number of splines matched the US-spec, it's still an import guitar. Everything fit perfectly and easily. The vintage-style amber knobs that came on the guitar got a bit lost against the finish, but these pop aesthetically and are also much easier to see while playing. I bought a set of the nickel position indicators as well and had both installed in less than 15 minutes. Philadelphia Luthier Supply had my order to me in San Diego in about 2 days too! Couldn't be happier.
Much better than current OEM or any other aftermarket I have seen. Correct reflector, font, shape and finish. Vendor was a pleasure to deal with. Will buy again.
As always, the product was perfect. The site leaves nothing to the imagination, detailed descriptions and photography that covers every angle. Prices are very reasonable and deliver is super fast. I've never had a parcel go astray from Philadelphia Luthier. I only wish they carried everything I need for guitar work - I'd definitely make Philadelphia Luthier my one stop shop!
I purchased these knobs to fit my '16 Les Paul Special and they fit perfectly! These knobs are of very high quality. The numbers on the side look great and the reflector top is the best you can find on any other reflector knobs. Thank you!!
The product is difficult to find in Europe. Philadelphia luthier tools has them and of course they were extremely fast in shipping items to Italy. Thanks so much.
I've tried this style of knob from other vendors, but they haven't looked any more correct than the current genuine Gibson offering. These knobs, on the other hand, have the correct bell-shape continuous side profile and dished, smooth-mirror surface reflctors with small-typeface Volume and Tone labeling. The others usually have flat-disk reflectors with a 'turned' surface appearance (you can spot this online when the light reflections show as 'rays' emanating from the center) and larger typeface, while the side profile often has an angled 'waistline' break with a recurved 'skirt' below it where the numbers are, neither of which looks vintage-correct. Also the numbers on these knobs look more like the real thing, as does the thinner upper 'lip' around the reflector. No these aren't "aged", but they look good on a vintage guitar and are priced better than most, certainly a whole lot cheaper than the "relic" shops or a real (or fake!) 60's vintage set.
