VWH Knobs

I just got a VWH, again, and the knobs are gold. I'm wondering what kind of knobs Ibanez uses for these. I know they are white a'la Fender style knobs. But are they the same one Fender uses or are they bigger/smaller? Just wondering because there are no new VWH's here for me to compair. White Fender knobs are easy to get here but I want the ones that Ibanez puts on them at the factory. Thanks for the info...

I believe it's the same knobs as fender... But I could be wrong!
In fact, 10 years ago, I tried to change my rg450 knobs with some other one (: differents colours, fender ones) and it worked... So...

That's right. I remember that now. Thanks. DiMarzio knobs do have different dimentions than the Fender knobs. A bit larger, if I remember right...

I'm not sure about the size, but the Fender knobs have black lettering, and I believe the knobs that come on the VWH have gold lettering. You should be able to order them from DiMarzio.

Fender knobs should fit the pots though, I put some on a JS1 once.

I hate stock knobs personally. I always change to the rounded metal ones because you can do volume swells easier. Doesnt the new jem have this type of knob on it? As well as vai changed evos volume knob to a metal one. I just find it easier for volume swells (ala cathedral, some old metallica etc.)

I changed the knobs on my DBK to chrome and the knobs on my VWH to gold. accents the hardware beautifully. I think the plastic makes it look effing cheap. Might as well get richard simmons face inlays on the fretboard if I'm gonna keep them plastic jobbies.
