    I had bought some pearloid buttons so I would not have to change the tuners. I was gonna do it on my Termite Tele which has a nice contrasting neck wood. It just looked too Gibsony.

    But the Kluson buttons or Sperzels would be and easy swap.

    Plastic buttons remind me of the junk guitars of youth.
