    I just bought a new 2011 gibson lp jr in pelham blue!
    I was googling around and I saw that all of the other ones I see have black knobs with silver reflector tops. The knobs on my guitar ar all black.
    Do i have something special?

    Any information will be helpful.

    Thanks guys!
    Erik

    Gibson made several versions of lp jr in 2011 - regular, 58 reissue (non custom shop), limited edition, etc.
    Gibson USA 58 reissue come with rosewood fingerboard, all black knobs, satin finish.

    the 58 reissue also has a 60s profile neck for some bizarre (and inconvenient for me) reason.

    They call it "chunky Vintage C". A profile is a little different and a little thicker than regular 60s with genuine rosewood fingerboard. I love the feeling of this neck. Mine is Satin Cherry from 2011, the same as in this video. Extremely well resonant guitar!

    When I bought mine it was advertised as a 60s st neck. It feels significantly thinner than a 50s in any case and I just can't play it for any length of time. Shame really, cos it's gonna have to go...

    I like 50s neck more than 60s, but this satin finish neck suits me well too...

    I have this one...black knobs as well.

    Although I'm in denial about it, it really has become my #1. Of course its the cheapest guitar I own!

    They use whatever is cost effective and/or what's lying around.

    Mine has a high gloss finish, but a darker fingerboard.
