Hi guys, I own a 17 les Paul classic. I love it, and I love it more every day I play it! It's a gold top and I put a poker chip on bc I like the look. Thought about putting black rings and pick guard on. Would it be a good idea to put black knobs on as well, or would the regular speed knobs look ok with the black? Also I notice lot of people change out the speed knobs for the top hat knobs. Just wondering why a lot of people change them out, why is that am I missing something? Lol. Thanks for your opinions
Playing, I prefer speed knobs. However, depending on the guitar, and the look I'm going for, I might choose top hats, and most of mine actually do have top hats. 7/4 ratio.
When I did my Studio Pro, I wanted to do a tribute to a '59, with a modern twist. I went with gold speed knobs.
When I did my GT, I was looking at pics of Greg Allman's old guitar, and went with vintage pointers, mated with gold top hats.
My favorite knobs, are the rubber wrapped speed knobs, Ibanez uses. Those kick ass. They'd be ugly as sin on a LP, though
