    I loved the lampshade knobs on my S2 so much I decided to install a pair on my SE Custom 24. Here's the before and after for those who may be interested.

    I dig 'em. Not only for the look but the little facets makes it easier to hook them with a pinky to move. I think this along with the locking tuners I installed pretty much does it for mods on the Lass. The only other thing I'm considering is chopping down a spare trem arm I bought into a Gilmour-style shorty arm.

    Those knobs are perfect with that amazing top. I agree that these are better for a pinky grab on the fly.

    I put a set on my SE Pauls, along with a set of Manns locking tuners and I agree that is all she needs

    Looks great! I love the clear lampshade knobs on my Whale Blue SE CU24, but that top demands amber!
