    Referring to these ebony knobs they put on the EX SS. Maybe I have used Ibanez SureGrips for too many years, but I find the ebony knobs way too slippery.

    Anyone has replaced them? With what?

    he’s from Spain, it can be slippery, his command of English is terrific. Very good.
    Suregrips, a couple of Ibanez loyalists - love it fellas. The look won’t be the same but if you do a lot of volume swells or other knob associated tricks it’s gotta be suregrips !!

    Thanks for the input. I did it today. Admitted, the ebony knobs look kind of cooler but with the Ibanez I have regained control. I could always change back if I wanted but for the moment....

    Here's a fix on the cheap... Maybe the Ibanez no slip knobs are a better idea :-)

    I see the sense in it... you replaced the switch and now a rubber band does the friction .... step by step ... slowly working towards an ideal EX SS together ... hahaha



    PS. replacing the overly loud switch with a smoother one will be the next thing I'll do.

    Suregrips make a significant different to control - it's one of the things I love on my 1980 AS200 .... together with the super 58 pickups, velve-tune tuners, neck..... a simple idea but makes a big difference !
