    The other day there was a post of a Pensa Malibu Series bass, the knobs were neat as the tops were the same baby blue as the bass. That inspired this simple mod:

    I had a buddy with a vinyl plotter, cut me a set of .5" circles.

    No damage to the knobs what-so-ever, and can be removed very easily.

    Do you like them?

    Hard to tell due to the image quality but I like the concept.

    I think it's cool. A better 'knob mod' than that kid who put amp knobs on his bass and made it seem like he was a genius.

    It was cheap, easy, and looks cool. A nice bit of added flair for your instrument. :)

    Yep. Same guy.

    And Rob, it's not really about just having 25 pieces of flair. Look at ibanezcollector, he's got 37 pieces of flair. 25 is just the bare minimum. Do you want to just do the bare minimum?

    looks cool. made me look at the black knobs on my on my bass that has a red stain over the grain that comes out a bit black,
    black high lights you could say.
    i have always hated those knobs.(not original)
    anyway then i looked on the coffee table at my girlfriend red nail polish and thought nothing to loose. turned out great against grain ,numbers on knob were white now are bright red and black just comes through the rest.
    thanks for the inspiration .
    ps if i never post again my girl friend killed me for using half her nail polish
