    Hey kind folks of TalkBass. I'm trying to find these two pieces:
    1: The cream ringed switch with cream switch handle. I've found the handles on EBay and have found cream Gibsonplastic washers, but nothing like the cream coloured washer/nut on this one.

    And 2: The smaller black and silver knobs, that are tall and thin.

    I've got a fretless Roadster in for a refurb at the moment, and I'm looking for the exact same knobs but with no luck so far. If I find anything I'll let you know.

    Are you doing a thread on your rebuild? I love old Ibanezes, have a number of different models but that Roadster model is on my GAS list...
    Did you buy it beat up and are bringing it back to life, or just rebuilding after years of use? Would like to see your progress.
    Either way, good luck with it!

    I'm almost finished it actually. The only thing I'm waiting for now is that cream rubber grommet and a cream Les Paul toggle washer. I'm super stoked on this build.

    It started its life as a severely beat up body, neck and bridge, with original preamplified pots.

    Here's the amateur work I did on it.

    To paint or not to paint.


    Cheers and I'd love to see some of your basses.
