I never use the knobs on any of my guitars. For me they are redundant (there are knobs on the amp). To realize my dream of an ultra clean knobless beauty I turned to Matt's Woodworking who sell excellent quality telecaster bodies on Ebay under the moniker: mattswoodworking-2008. They custom built this guitar for me.
