The first thing Baldwin did when they purchased Gretsch on June 1, 1967 was to change the guitar knobs. Dated from August of 1967, this Viking the latest month I have ever seen where the guitar has the original "G Arrow" die cast knurled knobs. I have seen June and July 1967 models where the newer Baldwin die cast aluminum knobs were installed on the guitar.

The knobs were not cast, they were machined out of a solid 1" Brass Rod stock.

I'm assuming your clarification is referring to the original Gretsch knobs, not the cheesy things Baldwin switched over to.
