"Burns" Knobs Dimensions

Postby (geordie9) » Fri Sep 29, 2017 3:06 am

Hey Everyone,

I've searched the site, but have not been able to find any thread, which gives you the dimensions of the Burns Knobs that Lennon used on his 325, during the first Ed Sullivan show.

I'm just Scottish enough to refuse to pay $80USD for 4 knobs, when I have a lathe at home and can fabricate them myself.

Could anyone, with a set of them installed on their guitars, please be kind enough to measure the diameter and the thickness of these knobs, and please send me a message with the measurements.

Many thanks in advance.
Cheers,

Steve

Thanks so much! Really appreciate it. It'll be a nice little project for my lathe.
