My personal fave is top hats, but a Custom without speed knobs just seems odd. Speeds have their place in the world.

Also, I'm on the fence WRT pickguards. Make of that what you will. :naughty:

Love both. Color and type depend on the guitar they are going on for my preference.

I like tophats. I don't do a lot of adjusting while I'm playing though, usually set my knobs where I want them and leave them that way for the whole song. If I did do a lot of adjusting while playing I would totally go with speed knobs, they're easier to adjust on the fly imo.

Speed knobs.

RichBrew

Rich seems adamant regarding the speed knobs

lol

Might wanna acknowledge him :D

Personally I would go with reflectors, because I'm stoopid and forget which is volume and which is tone all the damn time. Even on my single knobbed MM I have to have it labeled for fear of accidentally mistaking it for something else.

It does come down to that decision between that old 50's look or the equally valid speed knob era.

Which look speaks most to you?

(Or, you could go half/half... ;-) )

Kidding.

I vote top-hats.

gold top hats, even tho I never use them since I got my optical volume control.. edit the new morleys have this fix already done to them. I opened mine to double check.

amazing the things you can do with those..

I've been playing around teaching myself this..
