I need speed knobs, the top-hats are too tiny. Thinking about black speed knobs and then a black toggle switch cap...or should I stick with amber knobs? Don't want it to clash with the cream.

i dont think the black speed knobs would go too well with the vintage sunburst. I feel that maybe gold speed knobs would be much more suited. this is just my opinion though. you are good to go with the black switch though. Would make a killer looking LP:thumb:

Thanks. Yeah, that's kinda what I was thinking too. Currently it's got the stock amber top hats and an amber switch cap. I like the look but I thought big amber speed knobs would be too much amber. What I dislike most about these amber tophats is that the numbers are not painted white so they are very hard to read, on top of the knobs being too small.

Ok gold speed knobs it is, ordered from Sweetwater just now. Once they arrive I'll take pics of the guitar. Forgot to post ngd pics after I picked this bitch up.

Thanks all for helping me confirm my suspicions! :thumb:

Black speed knobs look good on any Gibson or Gibson style guitar.

But on that one amber and gold ones would look good too.

Your choice.

None of the options sound better or work better, so it's up to you.

I have gold on my Iceman because they sit the colour better, and black on my black Les Paul--same reason.
I have black on my LP copy though for contrast--so I can do either matching or contrasting.

This is what black would look like, doesn't look that bad to me. I'm gonna order a set of each eventually anyway. Btw, the color in this drawing is more accurate to how it looks. The GC stock photo is off.
