Re: 93 dollar knobs

Even more ridiculous than $6000 original 1959 PAFs.

Edit: Considering how low the value of the dollar is though, it doesn't surprise me. But still, that's quite a hefty sum!

$6000 is a good price usual going price is around $9000

When you look at the price difference between an orginal 59 LP and one with out the orignial part, it's well worth the money for the parts

Re: 93 dollar knobs

Yeah, you're right. What's the going price on a good condition 59 burst? $300k?

Actually they're $59 knobs, or that would be the equivalent where they were sold and bought. Just because the dollar is worthless these days doesn't mean the rest of the world should care what it would cost us.

Re: 93 dollar knobs

Hahaha when I saw topic I thought that they will be gold plated, with vine inlays, and some other super-cool stuff but they are just plain simple plastic ones...


keep in mind that inspite the fact that $ is very cheap now our (EU) prices were are and I think that will be sick. And for example some guitars are twice as expensive ( mine RG2550 bought for 1700$, the price didn't change till now).

another funny thing about prices i recently checked out Carvin's website, v3 and legacy combos for 1000$. Yeah pretty cool. went to local music shop, found v3 combo, price: 3000$ ;]

Re: 93 dollar knobs

Holy cow, 100 bucks for knobs...that's ridiculous in my opinion, but if theyre super rare and its for a collectors guitar or something I guess I understand. I personally love the Q-parts dome knobs, theyre beautiful and only 10-12 bucks a piece .
