    I have a fender american jazz deluxe and am thinking of installing an aguilar onboard pre-amp. If I purchase any one of the obp kits can I still use my stock knobs on their pots that they would send me?

    You should probably be able to use the volume pots. You need 50k pots for most aggie preamps. Do you know what the pots are on there currently??

    I believe the pots are 250k. I just want to know if my control knobs will fit the aguilar pots that come with the kit.

    I have an aggie obp-1 in my usa jazz deluxe and I used the same knobs.

    juice, Do you like the tone of your bass now that you have the aggie installed? I know that the stock pre-amps on the deluxes leave alot to be desired.
