Customized Fender® Stratocaster® "Soft Touch" Aged White Knob Sets

Featured "Soft Touch" Aged White Knob Set Customized With The Vintage '62 Style Dark Green Lettering & Numbering
Alternate Lettering & Numbering Color Sections Available

Customized Strat Soft Touch Aged White Knob Sets With Green Letters and Numbers

Aged White Soft Touch Knob Set Shown Customized With The Vintage '62 Style Dark Green Letters and Numbers

These knob sets are the new "Soft Touch" Strat knob sets, they have the rubberized knurling around the gripping splines. These knobs were introduced in 2016 on the American Elite Strat. The knob sets are only available in Aged White.

These knob sets are hand customized in our shop.  The featured knob set is what we call the Vintage '62 style that has the dark green letters and numbers.  We also offer a number of alternate letter and number colors to appeal to the most unique Strat® color themes.

With old or vintage knobs from many years ago this green coloration of the letters and numbers is the result of natural aging or oxidation effect of the original gold coloring that would change color with age, the gold would patina naturally to a dark green color. However, the gold lettering in modern production knobs will no longer naturally oxidize to this green color with time, the gold lettering will stay gold forever. Our reproductions offered here are a simulation of the natural oxidation effect of the old or vintage knobs.

When we customize these knob sets with the dark green color it interacts with the original gold coloring in the letters and numbers and turns the green a bit darker for a very close approximation of how the gold would normally turn over many years of oxidation to the dark green almost black color and some portions of the letters and numbers may still show some of the original gold which is exactly what would happen when the letters and numbers would have naturally turned dark green over time, so it is a rather cool and natural effect that we feel very good about how they turn out.

Each of these knob sets are Brand New, Current Production Genuine Fender® "Soft Touch" volume and tone knobs that have the original gold color lettering and numbering replaced with your choice of colors. Give us up to 45 days to customize this knob set for you.

Each knob set includes three knobs; one Volume and two Tone knobs and are only available in Aged White.

Approximate lettering/numbers color representations - Actual colors may vary 

Below is a representation of a knob set depicting the characteristic inconsistencies in the molding process of these knob sets as Fender® is having them manufactured. This characteristic is not specific to any particular color or style of knobs (soft-touch or regular), it is found on all plastic knobs. Often we find small flaws in the surface, usually around the skirt and most often adjacent to the letters or numbers as depicted below. These flaws are very small indentations or very small curly grooves in which the replacement color has a tendency to settle into and is very difficult if not impossible to be removed. So it is possible you may notice these small color blemishes next to some of the letters or numbers and it is simply a characteristic of the knobs and is not something we can work around, but we do our best to minimize the effect.  Even as the knobs originally come from Fender® with the gold lettering and numbering these imperfections are filled with the gold color as well, but since the gold color is not dark like the replacement color so there is very little contrast between the knob color and the gold, so it essentially goes unnoticed.  If you happen to notice some of these characteristics in your particular knob set, take a close look at these areas with a magnifying glass and you’ll see exactly why the replacement color can’t be removed from these small recessed areas.  Even in the Fender® Custom Shop RELIC Gilmour Black Strat® these characteristics are present. These characteristics apply to all of Fender's various style of knobs.
