Feeling like a bit of a "knob" after paying $20 to try one of the new "Illuminlay" guitar knobs. sort of an impulse buy, but it's on the way smile.gif The green matches my Gunslinger. smile.gif

Anyone else try products from these guys? DARIUS has one of the HUFF guitars with these guys inlay dots I think?

I think they look pretty cool.
If you like it and works for ya - 20 bucks is no big deal.

Just for some perspective ... http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-1958-1959-...=item1e8a31394d

There's a guitar expo that comes into my town every January. Always a blast.

But I always like have a scavenger hunt. What's the most expensive guitar, guitar I wish I owned, etc. But I always try to find the most ridiculous priced item. And people ask crazy money for knobs! Seen vintage strat knob sets go for a $400+

I gotta say it was certainly an impulse buy but if it works out I might get more of them for my other guitars smile.gif Having the volume number glowing at you seems handy. smile.gif

how do they work? Is it just glow in the dark ink? Battery powered?

(I'm sure I could look it up, but I'm feeling lazy. . . . smile.gif )
