    Hi, I dont know if this is a dumb question or not but after hearing about the S1 on the jazz bass, after seeing how it works on a P-bass, I was wondering if its possible to change the control knobs on the jazz so that it has the vintage style black plastic knobs?? any help would be much appreciated. thanks :)

    I don't own a Jazz with a S1 switch, but the S1/volume knob can be changed to a 'normal' jazz knob. (At least that's what I've heard)

    Any "vintage" knob will be solid, so you'd need a good luthier to either relocate the switch or replace a pot with a push/pull type that will let you use the S-1 function.
