I picked up a Gretsch Streamliner in a trade while I was clearing out a load of stuff I don't se anymore (this was traded for an iPad i bought to use on the plane on holiday that hadn't been touched since). The guitar is most likely going to be fitted with a pair of Gibson P90s (spare set) and a set of Grovers but I'm struggling with what to switch out the ugly knobs for.

Option 1 black witch hat type (should look good with the P90s and the guitar colour but not really in-keeping with the vibe of the guitar)

Option 2 Gretsch pointed G silver Standards (like every other Gretsch)

Option 3 you tell me? Any combinations you've used/seen that are cool.

Nice. That's the route I was feeling would be the way forward (I have these on my SG and Tele custom). It looks good with the guard matching the binding too. If I go down the P90 route it'll need a new guard too...

Option 1 would look great, with this color very ES 70ish and Kings of Leon like

Option 2 would make it look classier than Option 1

Option 3 - put a set of amber tophats, but then you would need this of course

Hahaaa!! def no amber.

I do like the silver ones but have them on my other one so I'd like to do this one a bit differently.

The perfect mix of chunk and playability, similar carve to o the older/better quality Korean and Japanese Epi semi hollows.

Good to know, thank you. They are really nice looking guitars and yours is no exception for sure

You can get them for a great price preowned and they're a solid modding platform.

Semi hollow centre block to keep down the weight and keep the feedback away.
