Blah blah blah

Says they fit snuggly. A little too snug, they cracked (3 out of the four) putting them on had to crazy glue one back together, eventually fell apart again.

      Comments about Gibson Speed Knobs:

      I swapped out the stock hat-shaped knobs on my black and cream Epiphone Les Paul Trad Pro. These are the Gibson knob color, meaning they are a lighter champagne color than the stock amber knobs. They look great, fit on easily, and I prefer the feel.

              Attractive knobs which work well. It is highly recommended that you use pliers to pinch the tip of the shafts to which the knobs are attached so that the fit is firm but does not require excessive force to mount the knobs to them. Otherwise, you risk breaking the plastic knobs. A thin screwdriver works well at spreading the shaft tips if you happen to pinch them too close together.

                  After upgrading to CTS pots on my Epiphone Joe Pass model, the original knobs didn't fit due to larger shaft diameter. These fit perfectly and look better than the original gold bell knobs.

                    Maintains original appearance and ease of adjustment for my Les Paul Studio. CAUTION: My originals were eaten by electronic contact cleaner running down the shafts and into the underside of knobs when cleaning noisy pots, and that's why I needed replacements. Remove knobs before spraying the wipers on your pots.

                    from Columbia, SC

                    Comments about Gibson Speed Knobs:

                    I just bought an Edwards Les Paul Custom and replaced the stock knobs with these right away. These are far superior to the flimsy stock knobs. They are somewhat of a bull to get on but are meant for heavy use and therefore will not easily fall or pull off. The plastic looks slick but is strangely grippy, making it simple to lightly roll your hand across the edge of a knob to turn down. A very useful, aesthetically pleasing upgrade.

                    Much better for control than the stock "vintage" style knobs

                    By Hector Leiva

                    from Florida

                    Comments about Gibson Speed Knobs:

                    Easy to install. Work perfectly.
                    They should be called "Slow Knobs" because in fact, what they do is reduce the amount of actual turning the control knobs do per movement of your finger. But that would probably not be a very sexy name. If you like to control your volume and tone (and have a tone bleed circuit), these are the best you can have. Your fingers get used to them immediately. They are also really good for those pots which are a little bit harder to turn because you get a bit more torque.
                    Seems they keep track of the QC. No blemishes or defects.
                    Sadly, the packaging seems to cost as much to produce as the actual knobs.

                    A bit pricey

                    from Chicago Burbs

                    Comments about Gibson Speed Knobs:

                    These are a bit expensive but that has a lot to do with having the Gibson name on the package. A note to those who complain of cracking; thes are for pots with split shafts, not solid. You should also note the number of splines (ribs)on your pots too. Pot shafts come in coarse and fine splined. And remember Some are US made and others are off shore so they are metric and will be a slightly different size.

                          Comments about Gibson Speed Knobs:

                          Yeah, so I've been playing for a couple years and recently grabbed up a used G-400 Epiphone to work on as a project guitar. The guitar was in pretty rough shape, and all of the original top hat knobs were cracked or chipped and rather than keeping the look, I went with the same knobs I have on my Explorer. Not only do they roll a little easier, I just think the black ones look a lot better.

                          I purchased these for my ESP EC-1000. They had a nice snug fitting, didn't feel like I had to force them on. Now it is much easier to alter my volume and tone, and these knobs look way cooler than the dinky metal dome knobs the guitar came with.

                          I purchased the wine red studio guitar with gold hardware, and it was a gorgeous work of craftsmanship. The only thing that I thought would look better would be to change out the black speed knobs to the gold ones. Man was I ever right. It really made a great appearance upgrade. The change over was really effortless, just be carefull not to scratch the finish. I don't know about other reviews complaining about difficulty and cracking. I had absolutly no problems. Must have been a gorilla trying to change them.

                              Great knobs that do what they should. Note: these knobs are for fine-knurled pot posts. They may or may not fit on Epiphone Les Paul models. Check your posts before ordering .. if you have coarse-knurled pots (18 spline) these will NOT fit and forcing them on will break them.

                              They fit fine on my Gibson Les Paul, but does the price really need to be this expensive? Really?

                              All your products are mostly made in China. The guitars are some made and accessories by made in USA. Inches against millimeter. Make sure to ask client of their orders, so you won't spend extra$ in returns & reorders.
