Hi All,

I am chasing three cream-coloured chicken head knobs for an early 60's resortarion project.

Like these: http://www.grouseguitars.com/sold/morepics/moremoodyblonde.htm

Any leads appreciated.

Cheers
Phil

Evatco in QLD has a similar style: https://www.evatco.com.au/knob-ch-cr

But if you want Dakaware originals I think eBay will be your best bet, or maybe this mob in Germany :

On the subject of these knobs, I bought a genuine vintage black Dekaware chicken head knob on eBay a month or so back to finish off a piece of vintage test gear. It was the only one I could find. Then last Saturday I paid $10 for a mystery box of assorted junk at an auction and, blow me down, there amongst the junk were 3 such NOS knobs.
