New knobs for UV777BK. anyone done it?

Well i think one of the first things that has to go on my UV777 I've got coming is the lame strat knobs. I realy don't like 'em. Soooo, I was thinking I'd get the metal dome knobs in black. I was wondering if anyone here has changed the knobs on their UV777BK's so i can see how they look.

OOh forgot to ask. What's the safest way to remove the knobs without scratching that lovely mirror pickguard????

To each his own, I love Strat knobs, you can tell~



I had a UV777BK at one point and I left them on there, I do think that black or chrome speed knobs would look cool too but i'd prefer the black Strat style knobs on a UV777BK.

You should get knobs with abalone tops to match the pyramid.

I like the original white strat-style knobs better though.

I've got those on my UV777BK, chrome w/ abalone tops. Picture "guitars051" show's them. I'd just post the picture but I'm so confused on how to post a picture directly. I don't understand what "VALUE" is or where I get it from.

I've said it before and i'll say it again, I like what you did to your UV777BK with the red, it looks awesome, Kenny. Nicely done. When I get another one, I want to get a black pickguard and go all white with the pickups, knobs and tip, just like the PBK Jem, it would be a perfect evil twin for my PWH. A fellow member here has a UV777BK done like this and it looks awesome.

Are you saying you don't play it anymore? Want to part with it?
