here are the most common knobs used on Kramer's, even though there were
others used on other models.
Used on Aluminum neck models and Pacers until 1985. Judging from
catalogs and other pictures, it seemed as if Kramer used these on
chrome hardware models. Black hardware models featured either the
metal "dome" knobs or the "labeled" plastic
Used primarily on Barettas and some Pacers, these feature the word
for the control it relates to. One other interesting thing as well,
the "Volume" or "Tone" labels are smaller on
Kramer knobs (like the one seen on the left). Other labeled plastic
knobs feature a larger font, and those were not used on Kramer Guitars.
Metal knobs were used early according to Kramer catalogs around
1983. Generally, there were used on most Kramers after 1986 except
for a few select guitars. The Baretta was probably the last in the
guitar line to move to the domed metal knob. Another interesting
note about these, the gold knobs used on Kramers were generally
Brass (not gold plated), and if you see them now adays, you can
bring them back to their original luster with some brasso.
