The vintage knobs disappear. Not enough contrast for my taste. But I'd still take that guitar!

+1

I prefer the ivoroid knobs, I like a bit of contrast too.

I think I would've been lured by this guitar long ago if it wasn't for the weight.  A (lightweight) hybrid of this one and the Emerald Lion would be just perfect.

I prefer the vintage style knobs. It's easier on the eye.

I prefer the amber, but the others do make for a striking look.

But I still prefer my Tabby  :P :D

I like the look of both, would probably prefer the Ivoroid though.

That does look like a fine LP though! I'll bet it sounds great too.

I think the amber ones do make it look more like a traditional LP, but the White ones do look good for a contrast and also make it look more modern/unique.

Dont know which i'd prefer if it were mine though!

Maybe a mixture of both! Also, welcome to the forum!
I think I hate being indecisive.
