Looking for NOS blue knobs and pickguard for an old BFP

Hi all,

Apologies if this is going over old ground, I've had a search through the forums and can't find a recent answer.

I'm looking for some NOS or decent reproduction blue knobs for a '91 BFP. The volume is the worst worn, but I could do with a full set. Everywhere I look the colours are too light. Anyone know a good place? I'm also looking for an old style pickguard with pickguard pickup mounting instead of direct mount. Ibanezrules seem to have just one lonely blue tone pot.

If anyone can help I'd be very grateful.

Cheers

And the only Tone I have left were last batch solid color and not the painted white base that wear thru. I've never had a set of NOS painted blues. That's a tough needle to find because alot of played BFP's are in that same boat.

Thanks Rich.. figured that would be the case. Do you know anyone that makes a decent reproduction? .. and what are the chances on that clear pickguard do you think?

If Rich doesn't have the clear guard, Perle Guitars can make it.

Regarding knobs, maybe these would work:

They might be a little dark though.

Thanks for the tip on Perle, if I can't get a genuine one then they look like a good option.
Those knobs seem to be as close a reproduction as you can get.. dark is good, they could maybe even do to be a bit darker since the originals are pretty dark. Has anyone bought these?.. and if so how do they match up for colour?

Re: Looking for NOS blue knobs and pickguard for an old BFP

I think those are the ugliest knobs I've ever seen. No offense intended if you bought them and put them on your guitar.

You can always change to direct mount guard but aftermarket is your best bet for a guard mount. Unless you're willing to take anything because you're replacing aftermarket, the likelihood of one being for sale is slim and then may be in crap condition anyway.

Lol.. yeah they are pretty fugly.. but those are their wierd transparent ones. Same people sell a slightly better looking version in solid blue.
They claim they are from the original moulds.

Ok.. nice one.. I'll try 'em.. they're cheap enough, no great loss if they don't look right.

Here are some pics of my old RG331 with blue Dimarzio Breeds... you can see how well the knobs match

They look pretty good eh. A fraction darker than the pickup maybe, which is how the originals are. Thanks for the link.

Those look much better and have a matte look like the originals would have.
