Jem knobs?

Does anyone know where to find a set of green knobs/tip? I thought i saw a vendor offering them, but not sure who. Does Dimarzio make something? Any clues would be great, as im building a DNA clone.
Thanks, Dave

Re: Jem knobs?

you can find neon knobs on e bay but they're really expensive!
I too would be very interested if anyone has a source of normal priced neon knobs....

Re: Jem knobs?

I saw this person on the evilbay selling neon knobs I think this person is in Austrailia. He's been doing it for a few months. Not sure of the quality of them... I think between around 35 - 40 is what they are going for

I'm very curious myself...

Re: Jem knobs?

I got a neon green set from the 'bay... very identical to the real deal (I have a 777VBK to compare it to, black text isn't quite black). Otherwise, these have some sort of "gloss" that really makes it shine... I've also search high and low for a neon green tip that fits on a YM-50 style switch and this is pretty much it.

ps
i have plastic green knobs if you're interested :P

3bay seller ibanezfreak777 has some for sale currently. They are $47 opening bid and about $15 to ship from Austrailia. They look good, but $62 is a bit much for my budget. I really thought i saw someone here offering that same NOS knob sets.

Re: Jem knobs?

3bay auction # 230342363338 has some white base sets for $35 + 10 BIN. Do these look a little light to you guys? Really hard to tell from the photos. The problem is that i dont want to buy Dimarzio pups in black/green and have the green knobs/tip a different color.

Yup those are the ones I saw on the evilbay that are from Austrailia. I'm not sure if they look light maybe someone here bought a set? They look good better than some of the other cheap knob knock offs I've seen.

Re: Jem knobs?

i have a few yellow knobs laying around.i have original from my sk and the others.i see a little difference in the collour of the letters.but you cant see it if you dont know it.if there is a lot question about them maybe i let them go for a lot less than those prices.
i dont think its that hard to find those knobs.

Yeah I've often been tempted by those but I've never bought them because I don't have an evil account. Anyone here used/use them?

Re: Jem knobs?
