    Hi, I have a Fender Jazz 76 with number dial knobs. Does anybody know if these are original to bass or did they come in later?

    The Strat knobs were definitely in place by '77, so your '76 could be either way. Of course Strat knobs went on split-shaft pots, and the original J knobs went on solid-shaft pots. Look at the date codes at the undersides of your pots and see if they're dated properly for your '76.
