• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

Top Hat?

Top Hat Knobs were used by Gibson in the mid to late '50's, they had sort of a hat shape to them, and were either painted black or bronze-powder gold on the insides to create their color. Old top hat knobs usually age to a very slightly amberish/yellow hue.
