Their simplicity and scope to experiment, both in the design and playing!

My website for selling my unique guitar knobs. I started making these for my own guitars, and put some on EBay to see if anyone else liked them: they did! Encouraged by all the interest and 100% positive feedback, I took the next step and opened my online shop. I'd love to see more guitars sporting my knobs. I think they are beautiful, and I hope you do too. Many thanks, Matt
