Tuning machine knobs

Hi all!

I was looking at some of this site's customized ibaneze's and noticed that some of those have some kind of custom tuning knobs. Now I wonder where could I buy them? I would need white ones, which are going for my modded S470. I suppose the tuning machines are some kind of gotoh knock-offs? I have already ordered other parts (except for the single coil cover).

And another question, about that single coil.. Is that black stock-cover removable, or do I have to search for bigger cover that fits right on top of it? I don't like to use bobbin toppers (or whatever they're name were), since i'm going for the closed pup (emg etc) look.

I'll have to ask for that since I don't have the guitar on my hands yet..

Thanks for your time and greetings from finland,

Jari M.

Re: Tuning machine knobs

What a shame. I found some of these at evilbay, but how the heck do I tell which one fits my guitar!? Don't really like the idea of buying a bunch of these blindly and getting ones that doesn't fit.
