    The custom knobs that I ordered for my Roscoe from THG Knobs arrived the other day. They did a great job on them!
    The top is spalted maple and the sides are African tulipwood. Roger did a great job matching the woods on my bass.

    I'll attach before and after pics...

    What a beautiful match! Congrats.

    If you don't mind me asking, how much do a set of knobs cost and how long do you have to wait?

    Anyone know where I can find a black, stacked speed knob ? I know it sounds funny, but thats what I need for a paticular bass.

    Ive got a Roscoe, and Im glad I know where to get knobs for it now. Those sure look nice

    Thanks guys! They really look even better in person. It gives the bass an even more handmade look.


    Bryan,
    They took about 3-1/2 weeks after Roger and I agreed on the wood combos & I sent the funds.


    They were $27.50 each (plus a little more for the concentric knob). You can get dome style knobs cheaper though. I just really wanted the tapped style with the pearl position markers.
