    Well, I guess I misremembered. I don't have G-shields. (I blame Photobucket. Unless I pay them $300, they won't let me access my memory.)

    Exactly that's why I was wondering! Because also the 0-10 numbers and probably the description for the knobs on the front panel would be hidden under the larger diameter G-Shield knobs.

    By whatever reason the G-500 was obviously designed for such generic small diameter knobs from the beginning.

    Compare to the G-Shield knob design on the G-300 (using GAD's picture):

    The G-1000 also uses the "Randall" knobs.








    Your knobs look the same, just color coordinated.

    (Although you are missing some end caps!)

    Man, the cabinet on this one is rough but it's gonna look nice when I'm done with it! I'm surprised the grill and faceplate are so clean given the rest of the wear. Now I just need to find some of those damn knobs. And one of those handle covers.

    If you expose it to the eclipse do you think the wood'll lighten up?
