      I purchased three of these knobs (one standard and two micro) for project strat that my son and I built. These knobs do look fantastic and the machined metal provides a no-slip grip for precise control. They really standout on the guitar and are quite attractive. However, for the price I would expect greater QC from the manufacturer. Of the three knobs one fit perfectly, one fit loosely, and one fit sloppy loose and that was with inserts in place. Granted, with the set screw they tightened down well enough but come on, they're not building the space shuttle, it should a simple matter to ensure some quality control. These knobs are expensive. If you are building a custom guitar or wanting to personalize an existing guitar to differentiate it from the pack these are a solid choice.
      Solid metal knob with knurled machining for a no-slip grip.
      The machining of these knobs are solid however, the fit is not as good as it could be and there seems to be less than optimal quality control. Of the three knobs I purchased, one fit perfectly, one fit loosely, and one was sloppy loose and that was with the inserts in place. For the cost of these knobs there should be more consistent and tighter QC tolerances.
      Very nice looking and definitely more eye popping than standard knobs however, they are expensive.

      Sadly Disappointed

      I bought the chrome with blue abalone for my fender jazz bass and they didn't fit. They made it seem that they were pretty universal fit-size

      Looks Perfect, Doesn't Function Perfect

          Comments about Q Parts Shell Dome Knob Single:

          Like a lot of other reviews, I have to agree that these knobs look awesome. I was concerned that they wouldn't work on my split shaft pots, but they're advertised as being universal. Each knob comes with its own allen wrench and a brass sleeve adapter. I bought four. They all spin off-center to some degree - some worse than others. I thought the brass sleeve was supposed to take care of that. I tried repositioning it many times, with and without the sleeve, but it didn't help. Maybe I'm being a little OCD about it, but I do wish it fit better.

              I put the purple ones on my PRS and they look sweet. The black ones weren't doing it justice, I thought. I saw these and thought they would look better than what was on there already. The feel of these are great, as well. Also they are smaller(width) than standard knobs- better for whammy bars but not for volume swells(although the grip on their sides is strong, so if your fingers are long enough...

                  I have been buying equipment and instruments from musicians friend for a long time and i have never had such terrible service with any other order, but this was the worst.
                  Musicians friend shipped the wrong order to me 5 times and charged me for extra knobs i never recieved. The customer service was no help at all, very dismissive and unresourceful. I was told several times that the my order would be checked for accuracy before being shipped but i never recieved the correct order. I will think twice before buying anything through musicians friend again.

                      The knobs are very nice looking and they are easy to install and have a nice grip- If you ever switched out a potentiometer for volume or tone - and had a hard time forcing a 'speed knob' onto the pot- these take away the fear of breaking something because they fit onto the pot and you tightem a small side screw. I installed 2 of the natural abalone knobs on my les paul years ago when one of the Gibson speed knobs broke- now i get these when ever I get a new guitar- I wish they had a few more colors to choose from.. like a black/green combo.
                      I just put the black/blue knobs on a blue burst guitar I modded and wow- they really really look good.

                        These knobs really do add great looks to a guitar. I have a Trans Blue guitar that had three chrome knobs as standard. Saw these Blue Abalone and chrome knobs here at Musicians Friend and knew they would really add that WOW facgtor to my guitar. The three blue knobs really give my guitar that extra color and customized look. They cant help but add vale to the guitar as well.

                            Saw these beautiful knobs on another site and thought I would see if Musician's Friend had them. And they did. So I bought several. They really made my guitar stand out. The guitar was trans blue, so I got the blue knobs. I also have a trans red tele and bought the mother of pearl knobs, and man do these knobs really add a touch of individually and class to a guitar. They are a little pricy, but I knew they would just add value to these guitars. They are quick and easy to put on, and comes with the little allen wrench.

                            This is a high quality, and very handsome product. If you want to add some bling, these knobs will trick your axe out sweetly. The abalone caps on the four knobs I got are gorgeous. highly recommended!

                            Solid metal knob with knurled machining for a no-slip grip.
                            The machining of these knobs are solid however, the fit is not as good as it could be and there seems to be less than optimal quality control. Of the three knobs I purchased, one fit perfectly, one fit loosely, and one was sloppy loose and that was with the inserts in place. For the cost of these knobs there should be more consistent and tighter QC tolerances.
                            Very nice looking and definitely more eye popping than standard knobs however, they are expensive.

                            I bought the chrome with blue abalone for my fender jazz bass and they didn't fit. They made it seem that they were pretty universal fit-size

                            The only thing I don't like about these knobs is that in the picture the black ones look like black chrome instead of flat black, which is what they are. Other than that these knobs are awesome and realy just top off my guitar, a Sector with abolone inlay and Ect. Already.
                            Comes with Allan wrench. And removable sleeve in case of other sizes
                            Good quality, beautiful !
                            Good value. Well made
