    The tidiest way to do that would be to simply rewire the volume pot as a tone knob.
    Sorry the bass didn't work out for you, but thanks for sharing it with the rest of us, virtually speaking!

    How about a stacked knob like on an early Jazz Bass?

    I love the look of that big vintage knob but yeah, I need tone controls. Stacked would be cool.

    I have this one on my radar. I love the idea of a single knob passive instrument.

    Do you have any details on what is going on in there? I'm interested in doing a parts bass with similar stuff. I have Musicman Taste but not the budget.....

    What pick up is in there? I know it's a EBMM, but is it a passive sterling pickup? Or a custom one? Interesting. Thank you!

    Cool bass, shame you couldn’t make a go of it.

    When I first saw those drop, I thought that the single giant knob should have been wired as tone with a push/pull, on/off pot.
