Hey, my name is Ian. Anyway, do any luthiers make passive basses without knobs? My desire for this began when my Ibanez's pots went bad and I pulled them out. I just sent the pickups straight to the output jack. 1. The tone improved substantially even through a cheap peavey. 2. The bass looks great! It came with these gaudy chrome knobs on it's dark blue body and now it's just sleek as hell. It's a GSR200 fretless with barts. So my ideal bass is a soundgear, ebony fretless, dark wood body with natural finish, no knobs, black hardware. Anything even come close to this? Thanks. God I hate knobs.
