    Apart from the costly boutique offerings, which brands of Tele knobs have you found to have ample knurl?

    I'm pretty sure that I picked up a decent one at 12th fret, if you are in the GTA.
    Some Fender model has truly nasty, gnarly, knurl, too...but I can't remember which.:bonk

    I just read my original post and they are a funny combination of words. :)

    Also, agreed on the AllParts Barrel knobs weak knurl.

    right on man. i have knobs by the usual suspects too, and they're great. the $40-50 tag is kind of out of hand though.

    My favorite knobs are the four Vintiques that I've had since the late 90's. I've got a set of Callaham, but don't like them as well. I prefer a dome top to a flat top. I sent a message to that eBay seller asking if he does domes as well. I'll post his answer.

    Got to love those Hong Kong parts. 1/10th of usual cost but 8 weeks shipping time.
