Re: Wanted : Thunder I brass knobs

I am still awaiting a price for a set of three brass knobs. As soon as he gets back to me I will post his price here and in the for sale section so that you all may order direct from him (international shipping is no problem). It appears it will be a considerably higher price than Mr. Blair was able to get them for in the Westone Spares Section but hey, at least we now have the option for replica brass knobs. Also he can make any brass bridge you may need with pictures and specs. I didn't ask about a brass nut but that should be easy work for him. Also his fame comes from quality custom brass Tele parts so all you Tele owners visit his site.

Just got an email reply from armadilloguitar. They can make sets of three (3) for $45 USD and $8 USD shipping for US orders and $11 USD for international shipping. That breaks down to about 36.20 GBP. He also stated that he can add an order button on his website for our forum members if that will make it easier to order. I invited him to review the spares section on the westone site and to post in the forums for sale section as to what he can custom make. I know the price is double what we paid in the spares section but at least we have an option now.

That's really good news for the long suffering knobless amongst us!
Thanks for working on this!

He said he is set and ready to go so contact him direct via the email link on his page. Just let him know you want the Westone reproduction knob. If you are the first to order please post pictures and comment as he has not made one to these specifications yet and I'm sure everyone would like to know how close they are to the originals.

Good work; thank you! Now, someone needs to buy knobs to keep the contact alive, eh!! They seem well priced for a speciality, low volume item too; we were a bit spoiled with David's gear because he was doing for love, really!!!

Wow, thanks very much!

If he asks nicely enough I might give him the shirt off my back too.

I checked with him and he accepted your offer as long as it isn't one of those Hawaiian shirts. Please contact him direct at givemetheshirtoffofyourback@aol.com.
