    Got any interesting knob action going on, either for coolness or utility?

    I got these dice knobs from a company that used dice that were used in actual casinos.
    These are from some casino in Vegas, I don't remember which.

    You get to choose which number(s) face up, and if the knobs sit with a flat side facing up, or
    with a point/corner facing up.

    They are very high quality and durable, unlike some of the cheaper dice knobs I've seen.

    It may look like a normal teacup knob, but in fact it's a knob off my first bass, a 1967 Höfner 500/1 that my Dad bought me 40 years ago when I was 13, and a year later I was stupid enough to sell it to my teacher. I changed the knobs to black and kept the original knobs for some reason all those years. So this knob is the only thing I have left from my first bass, now it's on a 1960 500/3, and it's really special to me.

    Those are some cool knobs.
    I dont see anyone's are numbered. No distinct position indicator. I guess you could use the tail of the bass clef from the Spellbinders. The 500/3 is gorgeous, such a tasty instrument.

    Indeed I am, although we've have no new posts for a very long time. :(

    I do so love those basses, so any new additions are welcomed!

    I've replaced many metal knobs with plastic knobs in order to trim weight. In some cases, 3 ounces or so can be trimmed on certain basses just by changing knobs.

    The chicken head knobs look cool, but not so much for volume swells. Bummer. I do have them on a couple of my amps, though.
