Tobias Killer B controls???

    Hey All,

    I just bought a used Tobias Killer B 5-string. But I have a question about the controls. There are 5 knobs - I'm assuming they are as follows: (top, closest to neck - master volume; top, closest to bridge - pick-up fader; bottom, from bridge to neck - bass, mid, treble). On the 3 bottom controls, the middle one has a center detent, but the other 2 don't. Weird.

    Or do I have this all wrong? Anyone clear this up for me? Thanks!

    Jon -

    I believe you are correct, that is the control layout. The center detents on the two tone controls are just worn out, something that happens sometimes on the Gibson era Tobias basses.
