Need knobs for Ibanez K5

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Black 'n Tan, Feb 5, 2004.


  1. I bought a K5 used and it was missing one of the "double" knobs, you know, the kind where it's got a top part and a bottom part.

    Can anyone help? I'm willing to pay, of course.

    Thanks

    I believe the sort of knobs you are talking about are called 'concentric' knobs. And if my skills were better, i could make you some, but i have never attempted a concentric knob :)
     
  4. Thanks man but neither of those sites has the knob I'm looking for. :bawl:

    Yep, they're called concentric and stacked.

    Wow. Talk about ignorant. I believe I will submit that post to The Dictionary.

    I believe it's just HIS opinion on the sound that matters. Your say doesn't mean a ****ing thing.

  7. yeah I agree its what sound we like (our own) not other peoples opinion.

    And I think that bass is very nice for the price

    Although I'm agnostic and don't really believe in anything, I also hope that god ****s him up (in the worst way) for being such an ignorant piece of ****.

    Obviously hes never heard the K5. If it didnt have Fieldys name stamped on the headstock itd be a decent bass.

    When a troll/spammer/idiot such as jaco_is_god posts something with a swear word or something unsuitable in it, if we could try and refrain from quoting him, because us mods have to go through and not only edit the original post, but every post where he has been quoted. Just a little request to make our day easier :)
     
  11. I heard the K5 is actually a pretty good bass. Just because it's fieldy's sig bass doesn't make it a POS man. Good god - Listen and play stuff before you actually post your opinion!

    I hope you find those knobs, those are really great sounding basses.
     
  13. I think i found the knob. I did a search on the ibanez site for the part number (you can't order from there) and then did a search on it. there's some company called Brook Mays that ordered it for me ... it might take 3 weeks but hopefully I will get it.

    Thanks for all your help! :cool:
