LOL I just received a Beatle copy bass which turned out to be a pleasant surprise. But in my curiosity, I pulled the control plate and discovered a sock (s) stuffed inside.. I'm sure it was done for feed back reasons or maybe to deaden the sound like drummers do for more thump. Back to the question, just how many socks can you stuff into a beatle bass? drum roll tada, 13. I had to pull both pickups to get access to all the socks. At least they weren't dirty.
