blank jazz bass control plates with no holes

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by thehangingmist, Feb 11, 2013.


  1. where can i find blank jazz bass control plates with no holes on them? preferably cheap :D chrome will be fine

    realised i could put on a 3 band eq with sweepable mids in a vol-bal-stcked b/t - stacked mid/midfrequency configuration with these small pots which come along on this pre i have on my beloved jazz basses! but all the plates in the world on EBAY are predrilled for 3 pots and 1 jack on the plate! now the search begins!

    edit: i want 4 pots and a jack on the control plate! the pots being small i can fit it all on board but i just need to custom drill the holes myself to make it work!
     
  2. If you call up Warmoth they might be able to fab one for you. Good luck!

    A couple of options:

    MojoTone has 5-hole, but they're out of stock at the moment.

    Buy a 3-hole and drill between the holes

    You could buy a jack plate and relocate the jack to the side of the bass, freeing up a hole.

    You could buy the expensive MEC stacked single/dual-gang pot and combine the V/B to one stack.

    You could go with the vol-vol setup and get a cheaper stacked pot for it.

    The last option is to contact a metal fabrication place.

    Yeah, I'd do stacked pots. In fact did so on my P/J that has only 2 holes and a jack. Stacked V/V and stacked Bass/Treble.
