Re: Jem knobs?

My 2 cents... Antnest is a good customer and friend of ET Guitars. Sure the knobs are not exactly like the originals, but they are a good alternative. We have a bunch of sets from them, for use on custom projects.

The other I need to point out, is that its difficult to photo a fluoro object. We all know that the pics of neon Jems, or bright neon swirls are impossible to capture accurately. I think its similar with these knobs. They are ridiculously bright and work under UV, like the originals. Also, the clarity of the numbering looks better to me than in the pics, it may be just the neon photo effect thats making them look so washed out.

The choice is yours really...




These look quite nice in person. I guess its all about how pedantic you really want to be about the look of your Ibanez...

Re: Jem knobs?

Hi JemFreak777, if you are referring to the knobs in the advert attached they arent ours brother. Our product is called "Jemenez" knobs and switch tips and are all basecoat and 2pac clears. No way you can rub the paint off ours dude. Were they painted in cheap arse enamel? I bet probably from a spray can!

Re: Jem knobs?

Any one who would pay $99. Australian dollars, nearly £50, For some plastic knobs must be a total mental case with more money than sense!

Correct, but they also might be a little mental about their passion for their instrument, which guides them towards exactly what they want. In this case, the original replacement product for their old skool equipment.. Some people have money to spend and some dont...

In the near future I will be getting a huge lot of stock, and will be offerering only Jemsite members a much cheaper price then on 3bay...

Hey TicTac,
we can do them for you. The neon isnt quite as strong, but they do the trick. Blue has always been the outcast in the neon range but they come up nice. Let me know ok
