Do any of you have a bass with no volume control?

    I'm going to be installing a Bart NTMB in my bass soon and am going to skip the volume control because of a limited number of holes. This is no biggie for me since I never use it!

    Do any of you have a bass with no volume control?

    I have a Hoppus bass that came with JUST a volume control, but the stock full-treble sound isn't for me so I wired in a tone control and then just set the volume at 100% and tucked the vol pot under the guard with the tone as the only knob. Intention was to play around until I found my tone sweet spot and then tuck the tone under the guard and re-mount the vol control so I could turn down if necessary. Never quite found that sweet spot I was hunting for tho....

    Well, you could get volume pedal, makes volume knob redundant.
