They are called "pointer washers" and can be found at many places (check the forum dealers). They are around $1 each and are simple to install. Just pop off the knob, unscrew the nut and replace the existing washer. You will have to bend the tips up to the angle you like.

My Lester is great but can't compete w/ most of these beauties. This post is awesome! We could have a nice Coffee Table book w/ the pictures of these guitars. This post is a real treat for a Les Paul Fan.

Re: Nicest Les Paul - CONTEST

Well, I guess it's time for "The Monarch of Maple" to weigh in. . .As a connoisseur of flameousity in the Gibson Les Paul for quite some time, I've seen and owned my share of same. I've been through the "big-wide" flame stage, the "quilty maple" flame stage, the "tight, ribbon-y" flame stage, the "subtle, peek-a-boo" flame stage. My now-mature and discriminating flame palette now prefers an all-over combination of characteristics in order to continue piquing my interest in a flametop Electric Spanish product, to wit:

-Guitar must have flame with "character"; not necessarily "covered" from stem to stern, but with flame that's interesting - usually inconsistent, perhaps even poorly bookmatched, but not in a "goofy" way. . .
-Guitar must have it's strongest "money view" from the driver's side, so that when I'm playing it and look down on it's manificence, I get some inspired "wood" of my own. . .
-Guitar must have some delicious "crossgrain", or vertical/medullary action to complement the flame. Here's where it gets dicey - the "wrong" crossgrain sends a definite "gag reflex" to my GI system - too much barbeque straightness is categorically verboten! What's needed here is some breathtaking curves, waves, pillowy-looking clouds, amoebas, etc.
-Color must be "tasteful" - not too much any one way; not too faded, not too dark around the edges, not too yellow in the middle.

May I offer as examples two of my own - an original 1959 effort from Gibson first, and then a fine R8 Historic product from 2001, a good year for the Authentic line:
