Beautiful Viper 12. The volume and tone knobs look like they're very close together. Is that an optical illusion or are they really closer together than a standard Viper?

They are close. I will likely swap the knobs for some chrome barrels with Abalone tops and put on a matching TRC for the PG.

Mike, if those are original Viper knobs, I'll buy them from you when you replace them.

Mark - They are the smaller Preacher knobs.

P Man - Were you looking for a TRC for a Viper? I can't remember if they are the shorter or longer ones.

I think (not sure) all the solid body electrics had 2 11/16" long TRC (my Vipers and Magnum II do ... I measured). Haven't measured all the Ovations I have, but they all sure look the same. I'm not in dire need of one right now but since those tips are so fragile, I like to keep a couple of spares on hand when they come up at a decent price.

Does anyone know where to get knobs of the same diameter of the original Viper knobs. Mine has replacement knobs that look a little weird with the dots on the pickguard so far from the knobs. I suppose I could measure the distance from the post to the dot and try to find something suitable at GC, but I just don't like going in there much anymore.

You will be under extreme pressure to be nice to someone... like it or not.
