    I have a Manhattan Midnight blue Les Paul. It has chrome hardware. Cream pick guard and pickup surrounds. It also has gold knobs. I've always thought that these looked out of place with the blue finish and chrome. I'd like to put chrome knobs on instead. I can't find any but Gibson replacement silver/clear knobs. They don't really match. Too dull of a finish. Anyone make a true chrome(mirror) finish knob? Thanks.

    if you're ok with the dome knobs, look at the future tributes from '13. You used to be able to get them cheap on eBay, but not sure anymore. I've put mine on a couple different guitars, but always ended up putting more traditional ones on.

    I love Gibson names. How on earth is a blue guitar "Traditional"? But good luck finding those knobs, as the gold is out of place, as you say. Gibson is so lazy sometimes.
