Clearly taste is subjective (except when it comes to Bon Jovi music...that stuff is just flat out awful), but have you tried orienting the knobs in an 11 o'clock or 11:30 position? They seem to look a lot better that way. Yours going horizontally seem to abruptly break the nice lines and flow of the guitar.

I didn’t really try to over think it and made it where the pointers point downward when the pots are wide open. That’s how I used the back tops as will with the white line pointing down.

Beats me, Kenny. Probably because we were discussing “knobs”? :D :D

Perhaps the black and silver knobs are wanted... dead or alive

Yeah, but you're living on a prayer if you think the black/silver knobs will make the guitar sound better.
