Hi,

I have a question for the forum re Burny Les Paul Customs, specifically black ones:

Mine (probably an early-mid 80's RLC-60) has black hat-style control knobs with black fronts, but I've also seen pics of otherwise identical-looking guitars with gold-fronted knobs (black, not all gold). Does anybody know if there is a chronology to this, i e where the gold and black ones used during different periods of production?

many thanks,

/Hans

Do you have pics? Do not understand your question.. this is the RLC knob used on all RLCs

Mine has knobs like in your pic (though with the metal pointers at 90 degrees, not 45). The alternative style I'm talking can be seen inte last post of this forum thread page at mylespaul.com.

My guitar looks pretty much identical, except for the knobs and plain truss rod cover. I've also seen the gold-fronted style on Sykes models and later RLC's with lightning headstock inlay.

Those knobs are not original on 1975-1998 Burny RLCs.
