    I've been thinking about swapping out the metal knobs on my P-bass for some rosewood ones to match the fretboard. What do you guys think?

  4. I voted rosewood, but keep the chrome- that way you can accessorize to match outfits(come on, now- we all do it- or at least should).
     
  5. i also think its a very cool idea. give it a try, post up your results.

    I can't see it on a bass with a pickguard.

    I especially can't see it on an all white bass with a pickguard. Heck, I'd be looking for white pickup covers too.

    Of course, decorations are a personal thing. However, with Fenders, stock always gets over.

  10. I voted chrome, would have said rosewood if it were a natural finish though.

    So far chrome is the winner :) I think I may keep it that way. I changed my mind a bit towards it last night.

    Yeah, go with Rosewood pickguard, and rosewood pickup covers. Now that'd be awesome.

    EXACTLY!!

    IMO, just about any bass w/ a pickguard should have white or black plastic knobs, chrome....maybe!! gold.....maybe not!!

    You almost need wood pup covers to pull-off wood knobs. P-bass? no way.
