Knobs? Either works just fine...

Damn, Vic... that's one amazing piece of work. You have got to be SO psyched! Very happy for you, brother!

I think they both look very cool but...I'd ask for both sets...pictures can convey a lot but when you actually have it in your hands it might look quite different. Get both sets of knobs and try them...something tells me you'll know right away.

Just think of how cool the wooden knobs will look once you've used them for a few years.

I am liking the wood knobs.
I thought about getting all black hardware when i got my carvin, bridge, knobs and switches. All blacked out, I wanted the hardware to set off the emerald green on the guitar. But Then I thought the chrome would brighten it up a bit, I dunno? Seeing this I think dark knobs might work well with me, leaving the switches and bridge chrome.
I just looked 2 ebony knobs for $8, not bad. I have an ebony fretboard, so i thought 4 ebony knobs.

good ideas to play with. :twisted:

Edit: the picture is all reversed, sheeshy. Seriously, diggin the lefty look one of my favorite jam partners was a lefty and I always found it easier to follow him like a mirror image or something. Good times.

Gorgeous.

metal looks like more of a color match, wood mo' natural. 6 of 1, 1/2 another.

I know I expressed my admiration already on TGP but would like to do so again now. What an inspiring axe!
