“Dear Sir,
A few months ago I placed my first order with you and built my very first guitar. Ovangkol back and sides with Sitka top.
I have been a craftsman for a number of years, rebuilding antique pianos, including making new soundboards and bridges, and decided to try my hand at guitars after buying a Taylor 814ce.
The results of my first attempt were surprising, to me and to others. Since I'm a bit "old-school" I built it entirely by hand, no table saw, router, joiner etc. (I did use a drill press!). I have already received requests for custom made guitars, and from a store interested in selling them.
It really helped to find quality supplies, all in one place, so I could start this experiment - which may just turn out to be my next and final career.
Many Thanks.
ps. I have just placed a second order so I can start making a few more......”

Speed knobs, EKB & EKG
Diamond knurled knobs

Black plastic knob, EKEP

We offer several different knobs to dress up your instrument:

Our speed knobs fit nicely on all of our pots which have coarse knurled (serrated) 6mm shafts.

Our diamond knurled knobs come in three different colors, black, gold and chrome and in two different shaft sized, 1/4" and 6mm.

All of our wooden knobs have rounded tops. They are not marked, but try inlaying one of our MOP or Paua dots to tell you where you are in the sweep. Each of the wooden knobs has an Allen screw to tighten it against the post (1.5mm). These knobs are great for smooth or knurled shaft pots. Our wooden knobs are sized for either a 6mm or 1/4" shaft (read description carefully). If you find a knob is a bit loose on on a pot you can use a little strip of copper tape inside the knob, which helps the fit and gives a good surface for the set screw to set against (Allen wrench not included).

The black plastic knob, EKEP, has a rubber bushing so the knob press fits nicely over the shaft with no set screw.
