I'm guessing old Magnavox TV.
It is a classic look, I still have the black one just in case. The p 90 black covers are a bit too much black, I have creme covers coming also, may get some chrome ones just to see if I like them.
Believe it or not, they really are oven knobs.
Back in the fifties, early sixties, Rickenbackers used to come with knobs that they sourced out from knob makers who made knobs for stoves and ovens. They really are knobs that went on ovens and stoves. Ric owners do not have to buy them from oven makers any more...there are a few guitar parts companies that sell the oven knobs.
But I still prefer cream pickguards on blue finishes:
I think it would look even better if it was standing behind the tree...
A green mint pickguard should be fine. I have one for sale, brand new. I can post pictures if you are interested.
Rickenbackers are the best looking guitars made. We all went through that on another thread. We all came to the same conclusion: Rickenbackers are the best looking guitars made.
Totally agree!! Too much black. The cream P-90 with black guard...”maybe” would need to see how it looks
what about nickel P90 covers and black guard? Chrome is very cool but nickel gets that “warm” look to it. After thinking about it I would definitely do black guard with nickel P90 covers
I think you'd have to block everyone that posted in that thread except you if you want to come to that conclusion.... Anyway, just couldn't resist pulling your leg. (But I do respect your opinion more than a Rickenbacker guitar...)
I appreciate the offer but I have a guard coming, and it is a p 90 guitar. But mint might be a solid option I had not really considered.
I had a blue Strat with a mint green pickguard - that pale green tint really killed the blue, so I swapped it for aged white - basically a fancy name for cream.
Oven knobs. Set volume control to 425 for TV dinner.
So after a little mock up I am thinking black with creme covers. I wasn't sure on the knobs so I bought a set of amber but they went on my double cut instead. I still may go with chrome domes but the silver tops may get the nod.
Love that combo on mine
Ooh nice Jr!
I like it! Just curious, did you consider chrome or nickel p90 covers for the project?
Thank you and yes it is still I'm the table, but I just got the creme ones and wanted to see how they looked first I got the creme pearl pickguard and it was a no go.
Nickel P90 covers are great on a SG, yes.
Axerius make high quality humbucker and P90 covers.
