    Can't find anything but black ones. I just like the look of the red ones though. I am NOT building klones or anything... just like swapping out knobs every now and then.

    Never seen the red Davies. I'm guessing Bill just bought an ass ton straight from Davies. Even Small Bear only has black ones.

    Not that you were asking this, but you can actually pain knobs somewhat painlessly. What I've done in the past is use some sandpaper to rough up the "inferior" paint surface then spray and clear coat. I works, except for being time-consuming.

    Also: good source of knobs - http://www.amplifiedparts.com/search/node/knobs

    If you're replacing the original knobs on your Klon, I heard the knobs were glued on and are a PITA to get off... If this is the case, you could screw up the pots by doing this.

    The model number for that particular knob is Davies 1470, but all I can find is black too.
