    In this link http://keithrichardsnews.90nn.com/portals/58/micawber2.jpg they appear flat. Easy fix.

    Now as to your deliberate ... I'll edit if I figure it out. :confused::D

    EDIT: I'm not seeing any strap buttons ... did you leave 'em off Deliberately?

    I'm not saying this is it ...but as I looked at pics of Keef and Micawber, I notice that he seems to flip the HB around; sometimes the poles are closer to the bridge, other times closer to the neck. Unless he's got two ... set up that way for different songs.

    nope, im gonna add strap buttons.
    micawber has the hb upside down always, you must be getting it mixed up with malcom his other one,lol
    I think the original fender 50s knobs are flatter but still rounded ?

    Flat knobs here.
    good that you didn't poke out the 15th dot - because it's the 17th thats missing ;)

    nice job you did there.
