    I'm putting a solid black pickguard on my new Sterling tommorow for a custom look.
    Does anyone know where I can find some knobs like this?.....

    Description:

    Chrome knurled knobs just like on the Sterling, but with a solid black round insert on the top. Solid black insert, NOT a swirl or onyx type.

    I think that would look pretty good with the black pickguard.
    Is ther anything different about the Sterling knob fit? Or is it pretty generic?

    Here's a place in the UK....I assume they'll send stuff to the U.S. http://www.bill-lewington.com/qparts/dome.htm

    As a point of reference, I just ordered a set of All Parts chrome dome knobs from my local guitar shop for my Sterling and they didn't fit. The set screw was too high, so it didn't make contact with the shaft. They are now ordering me a set of knobs directly from Ernie Ball, which is what I probably should have done in the first place. Good luck!
