Anyone know a cool resource or manufacturer for unique guitar volume/tone knobs?
Q-Parts looks like they're making some interesting stuff.
I'm looking for a new knob for my ESP Kamikaze, and I would love to find a knob that has a Japanese character on the top, or find a company that will custom make one for me.
Check out this site! I have the white skulls on my knobs on my Ibanez.

I had a similar thought, which was to get a flat topped chrome knob, have it custom engraved, and then having that painted ...Originally Posted by ArtieToo
That would look cool too. In fact, I've seen something like that once before in another application. If I recall, they carved out whatever letters, or pattern that they wanted, then simply "dipped" the end in red paint, and wiped it off. The paint, of course, stayed down in the "grooves". Looked killer.
I believe it was something in an automotive mag . . . from many moons ago.
Cool site, usgagi ... I'm going to email them and ask if they will custom make something.
Bummer they only deal in plastic, tho!
WD has some interesting ones, too. www.wdmusicproducts.com
I got some "Q Parts" knobs from WD - the "Ringo" - that are really nice. Heavy, great quality parts: http://wdmusicproducts.com/Merchant2...ry_Code=QPARTSOriginally Posted by Hellion
I've dealt with Roger at THG Knobs in the past (http://www.thgknobs.com/), and he does some amazing work. Seems like he'll make anything within his power out of pretty much any type of wood.. I'd say drop him a line and see what he can do.

Thanx! This is probably what I'm looking for.Originally Posted by Fatty
I only need one knob, so I'm not too concerned about the price.
I love the Pac Man control knobs!!
Not sure yet. I just thought about this & figured it would be a cool personal touch.Originally Posted by 7th Hell
