    Has anybody replaced the black speed knobs on the HBII? Any pictures? They don't seem to match some of the beauty of the rest of the guitar, but I'm not sure what to replace them with.

    I was thinking the lampshades too, but wasn't sure if black/clear or amber would work.

    I have the black/clear on my charcoal gray one and I like it.

    Both are SE knobs. I may put the ambers on as they seem to match the body better.

    Lampshades is always the answer.

    I think the amber lampshades look great, but the number of splines in the US knobs is different than the SE knobs. Technically, they're not interchangeable. Those of you that have switched to lampshades, did you have to force them on?

    The USA knobs go easily on the metric pots. It's the other way around you gotta force 'em.

    I'm looking at rosewood knobs from ToneNinja. They have some nice looking samples on Reverb

    I did the lampshades on mine, too, but I did the clear/black. For some reason, I have a strong aversion to amber knobs :). I would live to change the pickup switch to a black tip. Anyone know of one that fits the SE HBII Piezo?

    I'm right there with you, but after living with blck/clear on mine for a year over McCarty sunburst I opted to switch them out for amber. They just match better.

    Core USA switchtip wont work. You need Metric and Mr John Mann carries them here.
