Introduction: How to Make: Dice Guitar Knobs
Have you ever felt you guitar is boring looking? Do you want to add a little spice to your axe? Do you not want to spend 15$ at a specialty store for little pieces of plastic to put on your guitar. You can make really sweet guitar knobs out of a pair of old dice. I'm not telling you you could make the next Hendrix guitars with sweet graphics but these knobs are a nice accent to your insturment.
sorry for image quality these pictures were taken on my cell phone.
Step 1: Collect Supplies
If you have all the equipment lying around you will be able to do this project for pennies. Here is a list of supplies
2. Drill and 3/16" Drill bit (standard size on most guitars.)
3. Pair of old dice (you can buy new ones for less than 50cents at a local drugstore).
4. Modeling Glue (Optional).
It may be easier to use a drill press for the holes to make the hole straight.
Step 2: Drill Holes
Insert the bit in the drill and line up the dice. Put the center of the bit on the one dot in the die it will help you to make a more centered hole. Drill in to the die as 3/4 of the way to the other side or about the distance of the knob pole.
Step 3: Glue the Dice (optional)
Sometimes the dice wont fit snugly on the knob pole. If this happens you can take some modelers glue and put a small dot of it in the hole. Put the dice on the knob but remove it after the glue is partially dry. Wait for the glue to dry and put the knobs back on. the glue will fill in the extra space and the knob will fit better.
Step 4: End
Set your volume and tone and Rock on
