    My favorites are small chickenheads like on the top bass below. Since I took that photo I changed the knobs on the bottom bass to small chickenheads.

    I...I think I may be weird. None of my instruments has any knobs at all. Not. One. Knob.

  10. I like the stock knobs on my Matsumoku Westone Spectrum GT.

    I like all the furniture on this bass, actually. I just love this bass.

    Mine are on Stambaughs too. The first two are matching wood knobs (burl maple and buckeye burl made by Devin Cline) and the third is the no-longer-mine hollowbody with custom titanium knobs.

    I'm fond of these sort - really wanted the old gigantic GARNET knobs (or even the old gigantic ORANGE knobs) - but could not round any up...
