Missing Thunder Jet KNOBS

Post by Honky on Fri Apr 01, 2016 11:05 am

Hello
       At present my Westone Thunder Jet guitar is suffering the indignity of having Strat knobs instead of it's
wonderful original ones which were lost when it was out on loan. Grrrr. Anyhoo would any of ye know where suitable replacements might be found. I trudge through eBay regularly but to no avail. Any advice would be most welcome.

Hey there, bro... I'm afraid you're doing about the only thing that's likely to afford results as the Switchmaster knobs that were OEM were peculiar to Westone!

A couple of the lads did short-run reproductions which sold out out VERY quickly but other than that, the cupboard is pretty bare!

I suspect that some of us do have a set of these not on a guitar but we hang onto them on the offchance that an X350 or similar will fall into our hands and will be missing it's knobs....Laughing

Hey Honky, one of our newest members is going to attempt to recreate these knobs using a 3D printer! We all wish him the best of luck and we're all lining up to buy some if/when he succeeds.

Follow the progress HERE

Don't give up completely, and do check back over the coming weeks and months(?) to see how the situation unfolds.

I have a pair of the metal ones but they will be very pricey.

well they cost me 15 each plus the original plastic pair from my Spectrum ST, I think I may have paid over the odds a tad :/
