    I built a simplified version of a Jazzmaster years ago that has similar abalone knobs. They match the surf green very well:

    Custom knobs are not for me. I prefer the stock look.

    To each his/her own. I don't change out rims on cars, controls on guitars or much else. They can look great but lost on me from the player's position. If you've go 'em, enjoy 'em.

    Love the crank tone knob.
    I bet the volume increase arrow separates the punters from the players.
