    I posted a new parts thread and I finally got the second set of knobs. So which set does everyone like better?

    I like the jewel top. It pops a little more.

    When I look at it the color of the non-jewel knobs and pick up selector tip just doesn't quite match the guitar the way I would like it which is why I picked the Jewel knobs up above. Is that why everyone else seems to say jewel as well?

    I'll be the different one - you need a contrasting color there and a jewel top. Not sure what that color would be, maybe yellow?

    Jewel top and Tavo is right, that pick guard has to go.

    I’m actually leaning towards the solid red knobs but like Tavo said I need a red pearloid pick guard. All the red knobs and switch tip are throwing the look off right now. Knee bone is connected to the ankle bone.

    None of the above. Chrome or black.
