Re-Attaching Jazz Bass Knob
I am extremely embarrassed to be asking this, but I'm at a loss. Awhile back one of my knobs from my Jazz fell off and it is so loose that it will not stay on anymore. It is a 2003 MIA Standard if that makes any difference at all
I have tried standard and metric allen wrenches to no avail to try and tighten the black plastic knob. What am I missing here? How are these knobs supposed to be tightened? I attached some pictures so everyone can see what I'm talking about. I apologize for the question, but any responses are greatly appreciated.

Looks like the set screw has fallen out of the knob. Replace that and you'll be good to go. (See the other full sized knob for the proper screw size.)

yes you are missing the set screw

Thank you both for the replies. Can't believe I didn't notice that. I checked my allen wrenches and it looks like the set screw is 1/16", do you guys know if a standard hardware store would carry that?

A hardware store will probably have a screw you can use. Otherwise go to your local music store and buy a set of knobs.

Thanks, everyone. Went to the local hardware and got a screw for $0.23 and fixed the issue. I appreciate the help on such an obvious issue.
