    I order a new set of genuine Gibson top hat knobs, the new knobs arrive with a mirror top like Custom Shop knobs.
    Here is a picture,

    I'm uncertain. Is this good or bad?

    My guess is "neither". They are knobs. :lol:

    The listing shows an opened package. That was my first clue.
    The silver part reflects like a mirror instead of a brushed aluminum look (like every other new Gibson knob I’ve seen lately.) That was my second clue.
    Looking from the bottom (listing photo) you can see the numbers on yours unlike the Gibson knobs I have..Third clue.
    Your letters all read towards 0, new Gibson’s read towards 2…Fourth clue.
    I actually did find some mirror like reflector knobs that point to 0 on Reverb but they are from Allparts…
