Hi there. This is my first post, but far from my first time on the site.

I just came across a TB1000A (Serial number 317; unfinished near-black koa) here in Tokyo and I'm pretty sure it's been modded with new volume/tone knobs. I asked the guy if they were original and he said they were, but I have my doubts. Did TB ever make guitars with numberless black plastic knobs? None of the pics I've seen of A series guitars have knobs that look that cheap.

Thanks.

I am no expert but my TB1000S has the standard black knobs that I see on many vintage and all-original TB guitars but with the printing missing. I've never been able to ascertain whether they were made that way or a previous owner decided to make them disappear/they wore off with use. I have no idea (and I'm probably not helping much) but I feel my knobs are authentic anyway and will be interested to hear other replies to this one.

What size are the knobs on yours? Are they full-size, like on a Les Paul? The ones on the TB I'm looking at are quite small; they actually remind me a lot of the knobs on my Maxon distortion pedal.

I'm probably going to get it anyway. :)

Mine are definitely NOT that smal...they're what you see (black) on most versions and that's why I assume they are authentic. My TB1000S is 1691 and in the database. They have the little "bottle cap" indentation on the top.
