    Default Another difference in EVH specials?

    I've read about the leaf springs and stuff but am curious about knobs. I've read where some have the MXR ones that glow in the dark. Mine don't glow, do yours?

    Mine do - MIJ Tobacco Burst Special, Manufactured 8/2010.

    The chemical that makes that paint glow needs UV rays every once in a while, same as my watch. Let the knobs soak in some rays, and take another look to see if yours light up (the sky).

    I've got two USA EVH Wolfs and the knobs glow in the dark

    I just checked my MIC Stealth and no glow for me. If I ever have a blackout here, I'll never find this guitar in the dark...
    If you have nothing nice to say about Eddie Van Halen, you're at the right website. - Me (A few years ago)

    "People take Van Halen much more seriously than we do" - David Lee Roth (1980's)

    "I don't sit on the end of your bed while you're trying to make a living" - David Lee Roth (1988)

    "For some reason people love to complain about everything. The internet has made it easy for people to do that. Shut the fuck up and get a life, or show me how good you can do it."- Edward Van Halen

    "A lot of people ask me which Van Halen singer was better. You can't compare them. It's like asking which guitarist is better. Nobody is better than anybody. Every player is their own person."-Edward Van Halen

    "I do like Eddie Van Halen as a player. He gets it right quite often." -Paul McCartney

    Checked my MIJ Stealth Special HT last night - they glow.

    Seems like MIJ and USA do, but others don't?

    Granted, this is a very small sampling of "tests."

    Most of my MXR gear has the glowing knobs, and my 10 band EQ has all the graphics in glow paint. It's pretty darn bright.
