This site never ceases to amaze me! I'd just seen this one, pitched up here to ask if anyone could help with the err ... odd knob issue.

And I've been beaten to it What a Face

Any ideas welcome, this Thunder looks in really good nick apart from the controls looking like no other.

I have a friend who complains about knobs being anywhere near the pickups because he'll hit them while playing. Maybe this guy had that problem and decided to "fix" it?

Second what Warrn said.

Looks like it could have been moved for a heavy strumming player, knurled brass isn't very forgiving on the knuckles!

Gotta wonder what's going on under the hood though... Neutral

At least this wasn't done to the active version, "aargh, so many wires..."
