    I broke 2 knobs on my Gibson so I order better quality knobs.
    One set from Crazyparts and an other one from Philadelphia. Both are very good quality, which one do you prefer ?

    Only cosmetic. I like the ones with the machinearks on the reflector cap.

    Who made those?

    All Parts has knobs that go to 11,

    They also have witch hats:

    If they had witch hats that went to 11, those would be my fave.

    One of these knobs goes louder than all the others.

    I like the knobs on the right a little better...the little bit of circular dimension is cool

    The left ones come from Philadelphia Luthier and right ones come from Crazy Parts.

    The left ones are more historically accurate. The original Gibson knobs didn't have the machine marks that do the radial reflections. The new Gibsons have the machine marks.
