What replacement knobs fit and work best for 1950 Gibson ES300


Recommended Posts

My dad's 1951 ES 300 (now my brother's) is the first guitar I played . It too needs knobs as 1 of the original got lost due to the post hole deterioration causing a loose fit. The remaining 2 were damaged from glue being used to keep them on . I looked for the original style, can't find them anywhere . They are deep barrel knobs (gold) with no set screw or splines . I drilled out some Les Paul knobs to fit but had to touch up the paint after drilling. I used black knobs to make color match up easy . Not ideal but they worked .
