    Starting closest to the neck (or your left as you look down at the bass while holding it)*:

    Volume This is the only control that can turn the bass volume completely down.

    Pan (or "balance" to go between the neck and bridge pickups)

    Stacked (one on top of the other) Bass and Treble. The Bass is the bottom knob, the Treble is the top.

    Mids - midrange control.

    All tone controls are cut and boost, turn clockwise to boost, counter-clockwise to subtract.


    *This is all assuming that the bass is unmodified.
