Difference between white base and solid base ibanez jem 77dy knobs?

Hey im thinking of buying ibanez neon green knobs for my jem77dy project, whats the difference between white base or solid base ones?

Quality difference or just colors or paint type?

I am interested in knowing all of the differences before i drop 50 bucks on some knobs. =]


Thanks

The major difference which Brian neglected to tell apart from the uglyness, is that the white based have their color sprayed onto them, and give a very nice neon glow under UV lights.. More expensive because they are harder to find.... Downside is that the color eventually rubs off from use where the solid colors have the color running all the way through the plastic and will never rub off..



White based on the left and solid on the right Both are authentic Ibanez brands

Solid are coloured plastic with smaller font number and writing. White base have bigger text and are generally brighter. The green knobs on the DNA were solid green... maybe compare some pics of dna(solid) to dy(white base).

tomorrow i can post a pic of green solid to green white base.

i don't think so... looks great on my UVGR :P Personally, I like the solid on the UV... the white-based looked "off" on it. Difference is the solid "shines" whereas the white-based "glows" :P
Here's a treat, applications of solid and white-based [stock].

I wouldn't go there, these tips are already spray painted... i think it'll be easier to use a white [import] switch tip and spray paint that instead.
