That makes the Bronco Amp look even better.

The Fender Silverface Musicmaster amps had Bronco knobs on the later models I think. The model I bought had the witch hat knobs.

I am really getting into casting and molding. I'm willing to help and am actively working on a few for me, as well as some remakes of vintage radio knobs. I have two originals in perfect condition I am working from.

I have a complete Bronco and an extra body that I am going to BAIL on because I can't find a bridge. The one this week sold for like $265, which is almost as much as I paid for everything else. Were it any other model I could toss a Musicmaster bridge on it. But I don't want to do that kind of mods.

Talk to the guy on offset who took over custom plates from paul rhoney, he said with an outline he could do a hardtail bridge like my mustang...

Looking VERY good, if you can imprint numbers you could fake it with some aluminum style paint Shocked

To be honest, I actually dig those in white. Look really classy.

The one on the right looks a bit pitted, it isn't, those were resin debris and rubbed off and it looks great. I think mating them with skirts from other knobs is the way to go. I want to make a mold of just the top and a bit of meat to work with affixing it.

I like the white too. I am going to use one of these and put a marker dot divot on the surround and cast some white ones like that for the parts bin.

I am going to do about 10 and today I plan on grabbing some set screws and the supplies to drill/tap them.

Me too. I can think of quite a few of my guitars those would look absolutely kick-ass on.

I grabbed the set screws today. I'll prob get the rest of what I need tomorrow. There are 4 clones in silicone now making another mold. Hopefully that will do well to do 6 at a time. I also have a pair of Sovtek small stone knobs in progress. I did a pretty nice LP knob a few days ago. Placed a seed as a marker. I didn't drill it or anything tho. I am interested in seeing how it turns out.
