I'm looking for some of the knobs that came on the Electra Westones in '84. SLM was putting a Gibson Les Paul type (clear on top, black base and white numbers inside) on the basses. Doesn't anyone know who made these? Would love to have it all original. If anyone wants/ needs some Westone Switchmaster knobs, I have a set to get rid of.

The clear speed knobs with the extra ridges on the sides are sometimes called 'ibanez style'. I was able to pick some up on ebay a while back that way.

In 84 the Electra Westone guitars started carrying tapered black metal knobs, slightly wider at the top than at the base. These are really hard to find extras for. I usually end up using the knobs above instead. Not sure exactly when the switchover happened.

My original X650 had the LP style knobs. I'll try to find some pics of it this week.

I believe the knobs on the 695 are the original ones.
