    What are the allen wrenches sizes for the control knobs on basses? One of mine recently became loose on my bass and i need to screw it back on but i dont have the tool for it.

    Thanks.

    The knobs are identical to ones in this picture:

    Just take a knob to a local hardware store (that's what we call them in the US...not sure about the UK) or a store that sells tools and have them find one that fits.

    I know at least on Fenders, you can use the same allen wrench you use on the bridge saddles. Not sure about your particular bass, but if you happened to get one with your bass, it probably will work. Either way, a luthier could probably tell you what size.
