I have just acquired an old Knox " Victoria" bass. It needs some parts, like a bridge, control pots and mounting plate. Maybe even a better pickup as well. Should I change the string routing to a through body set up ? I do not have any pics of it yet...but here is a link to one. http://denver.craigslist.org/msg/3522115530.html
( maybe I am old, but I like the neck inlays on this ) Plus someone went after mine with a power sander .. . . looks like mahogany, but it is done with 9 plies ....the neck looks to be made of the same wood, but it is solid / rosewood board / cream binding blending into the block inlays...nice looking neck, I think. Unique control plate ( the pic looks chrome, possibly being even made from steel...mine is the same, just black and plastic. So I have a project on my hands for sure...So any help, suggestions would be great.
