Thread: Amber Speed Knob Question!!

    Amber Speed Knob Question!!

    Hey guy, this is my 1st post here. One of my most treasured guitars is an '88 "Special" Goldtop I took off a friends hands about 1 1/2 yrs. ago.
    Somehow the amber speed knob that goes on the rotary switch has broken. Actually the base of it that goes on the shaft has cracked and
    a piece has broken off. I haven't had any luck finding a replacement. Is this something I need to contact PRS about? I tried aftermarket
    and online sources. Any help would be appreciated. Here's a pic of my baby.

    Hello Tejas,
    I'm afraid those knobs aren't produced anymore, so your guitar is now useless without being able to select different pickups. I'll take her off your hands to save you the trouble. What can I say? I'm a giver.

    I'd just have to keep asking around I guess and see if any shop or private individual has one in a workshop drawer.
    Not really happy to hear this,but I'll keep looking. Thanks for the info.

    Sorry man. I was just teasing. I REALLY like your Goldtop and was acting like I was pulling a fast one.

    We no longer offer the type of knobs with the hash marks in between the numbers, but we do have amber speed knobs without the hash marks.

    BTW- Sweet guitar, beautiful setting!

    Thanks Shawn. I guess I could get 3 new amber knobs and have them all look the same. I'm going to
    look into doing this. Thanks again.

    Shouldn't be too hard finding replacement knobs. As Capincowboy says, you can get them off the PRS shop.

    I mainly wanted to congratulate you on the guitar though and a real nice pic!

    Thanks Mike. I feel the same way. I've been trying for a long while now to score an early DGT Goldtop at a really good price, but to no avial. I guess there's
    no such thing. I'll stay patient and wait it out like I did for this one.
