I want to change Speed knobs on my Les Paul. I want to put Gold Top Hat Knobs with Metal Insert.

1) Are there Gold Top Hat Knobs With Silver Metal Insert by Gibson

2) What are the knobs on the pictures?

a) Gold Top Hat Knobs with Silver Metal Insert
b) Gold Top Hat Knobs with Gold Metal Insert

Speed Knobs don't get that much love do they?
I kind of prefer Tophats, but I must say I really don't mind the speed knobs on my Trad:yesway:

I too am considering pulling the speed knobs off the Traditional honeyburst and put gold top hats on....

I will also recommend these, I have already bought 2 set of the gold with silver, and 1 set of the black with silver from them, and they are great. I have always been a speed knob guy because standard tophats feel to small to me, harder to grip on the fly, but reflector top hats on the other hand, are taller and have a little larger diameter and are actually very comfortable, and nice in between. I am now in the process of changing all my Les Pauls over to reflectors.:dude:

Fixed for you man :naughty:
As a man who loves mammaries, I approve of those knobs! Preferably pressed against my face. After all, I need to make sure they are functioning properly both tone and volume wise, it takes time to tune in woman tone after all :naughty:

hoes are extremely nice knobs! but I don't know that I would want to be speedy with them....:naughty:

I put top hats on my Traditional first day I had it :D. I went with Gold with gold inserts since Gibson doesn't sell gold with silver. They look pretty good with my Iced Tea finish:

My kind of trouble....WOOF!
Now, what was I going to say..ah yes!
I find trying to read the numbers on the speed knobs hard under stage lighting, where as gold tophats with silver inserts and nickel/chrome pointers to be much easier under all kinds of lighting.
Plus, they look much better, the original knobs.
(which one's vol and which one's tone?...which one's pink?)
