Volume/Tone Knobs

Probably a n00b question, but where can I buy the multi-colored Fender-esque volume and tone knobs that I see on so many custom Ibanez guitars? Forgive me for the stupid question

Re: Volume/Tone Knobs

I just bought some off the Jemsite classifieds. They are hard to find and range from, oh, I don't know, $50 to $80? Something like that. Post a "WTB" ad in the classifieds.

Buy spray paint and white Fender knobs. That's all they are.

No, they are not. If you were to spray regular knobs you'd paint over the text on them. On original Ibanez white base knobs you can still read the dials.

I currently have some pink JEM knobs for sale, if anyone cares. nightofthelivingshred was supposed to buy them but he appears to be avoiding me these days.

You can check all parts for them too. They may not be exact Ibanez replacement knobs, but they wont be $50+ either.

That's why you would cover the text with wax, as was suggested previously on this site, I believe in the tech forum.

Re: Volume/Tone Knobs

I've wondered that myself; the ones I have appear to be black (text) on orange (overall) on white.

You can buy Strat knobs with black text also.

Yeah, those are original, but i was talking about spraying solid white ones without covering the text with wax as suggested... i dunno, sounded messy
