    Just placed a couple of clear knobs. I like them so much and the numbers are really better readable.

    Nope... nothing good here. Knobs were too deep touching and scratching the top. Sent back in a while. Seems that PRS does everything totally different from anyone else. Guess why.

    Maybe instead of switching out everything on this guitar, leave them as-is - PRS has put together a great instrument that is uniquely a PRS.

    Why not just get the lampshade knobs? They work great on SE models.

    You don't know how this guitar is turning with my mods.

    Edit: The pots have threaded shafts. There's a nut on top that you see, and there might be one underneath that sets the depth of the pot. It might just be a matter of lowering the internal nut (raising the pot) so you can use the knobs you like.

    No depth nut on mine. Yours has one because it's an hollow body so the top is thinner.

    Apologies, I should have said 'likely' or something. That's why I said "It might just be a matter of lowering the nut." In the past 4 months I've bought over a dozen pots as I'm building several guitars.They all come with the depth nut - CTS, Alpha, Bournes, etc. I prefer to use them where I can rather than cutting the shaft.

    No problem man... I've never found the depth nut, unfortunately, every time I've bought pots. Even if it would have been useful. The problem here is that the knurled shaft is shorter than usually so the knobs goes all the way down touching the top. As soon I will change the pots with cts with longer knurled shaft I'm pretty sure it will fix. Anyway if it doesn't i will left the stock knobs and I will live with that ones. I have no choice. It's not a main thing.
