Does anybody know where I can get one? Do they exist?
I think I can help. Check your PMs.
I know this thread is as dead as it gets, but does anyone know where to find a 5 hole control plate?
wow, that's pretty dead.
why 5 holes? surely there's a less cramped and unwieldy way of doing it?
Maybe send an email to ESP and ask them, they make the Amaze bass that has five knobs on a Fender Jazz-style control plate (Vol, Bal, 3-band eq). They started off as a parts company in the 80's, so they might still be able to sell parts to people. I don't imagine it would be a particularly cheap option though, as they aren't technically a parts retailer anymore. Maybe just have a look at parts companies that sell in your country, there are a fair few around.
You could utilize your drill skills, or make a blank one and drill it yourself.
Get a 3 hole and drill between those holes?
I'm with this guy. Get some small knobs for it, and it might just work out.
Out of stock at the moment
Very old thread... hoping to get away with drilling holes between on the three hole plate.
Just used one on my Jazz VM '77
Good to know where to get them!
jeez, rather than all that crammed in there and hanging over the edges, just add a side jack and use a normal 4-hole plate.
I, for one, like everything on top so I don't have to "hunt" for anything. Granted, the bass I currently gig does have a side jack, and although I like almost everything else about the bass, I do not like hunting for the jack.
that's just it; with so many controls all jammed close together like that, i would be "hunting" for the right one in the middle of the song!
hunting for the jack on the side shouldn't be a big deal, it's not like you're doing so during the songs or (for us one-bass players) even between songs.
I have had others on stage pop my cord out, and other incidents where, yes, I have had to hunt for the cord and jack, sometimes in the middle of a song. YMMV.
That's why the cable always goes through the strap, preferably with a right-angle end on it.
You know, I've been playing electric guitar since April of 1975 and bass guitar since June of 1976. I know that. Events can still eventuate. YMMV.
i hate when they do that
