    I have an epi Les Paul with push/pull volume controls and I noticed the volume knobs have a slot cut into them all the way around the top, it makes it easier to pull the knob up for switching. I’m looking for another set or two of these.
    any help would be appreciated

    Epi's are metric. Gibson knobs won't fit. Might try Amazon they have a lot of them. maybe StewartMac. GC, that's where I got mine from

    @nickurso Don't think it's what your looking for but they're yours for the asking . They came off my Gibson SG Tribute ( set of 4 )

    Nick are you finding any of these?

    I bought a 2018 Epi LP that had those same dark gold knobs that didn't look right at all with the color of the guitar. I moved them to my cherry SG and they look good. Sorry I don't have any for sale.

    Is the problem that some knobs aren't easy to pull up, they're too slippery? I've had the idea of chucking a short piece of wood dowel into my drill then spinning the knob and holding a thin knife against it to cut some shallow grooves. Haven't tried it yet.

    Edit: and on that LP I installed a set of the black knobs that are about 1" diameter with straight sides, they're easy to pull up without slipping.

    I replaced all my push pull pots with push push pots.

    So much faster to use. Just tap to change states. No need to wrestle with slippy knobs.

    stop sniggering at the back!
