    Ok, it's been four or five years, but if memory serves me:

    volume
    blend
    tone (normal tone roll-off if "down" but if pulled out, it boosts frequency ranges)
    series/parallel switch

    Someone, correct me if I'm wrong...

    It's a fun bass (and soooo light!). Enjoy!

    I thought the switch might be a slap contour?? and the push pull a passive mode??

    Anyone?

    It's definitely a series/parallel switch.

    Yeah, that push/pull knob works just like a passive knob down, and an eq boost when pulled. Here's the press release that I just dug up:

    The Renegade

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Renegade's beauty is in its simplicity. Featuring a solid alder body and maple bolt-on neck, it speaks with a powerful vintage voice. The sound is supplied by a humbucker and jazz bar pickup, both custom made by Bartolini. A toggle switch allows the humbucker to run in "series" or "parallel", offering a wide variety of tone. A pull on the tone control activates the contour circuit, which uses a trim pot to boost the Renegade's EQ curve. For a more "natural" sound, the tone contour circuit is by-passable.


    Features:
    Solid alder body
    Three-piece, bolt-on maple neck
    Heelless neck joint/dual truss rods
    One Bartolini humbucker, one Jazz Bar humbucker
    Active preamp with TC-7 pickup circuit, push-pull tone control
    Tobias bridge
    Black hardware
    Maple fingerboard
    24-fret, Double Octave range
    Hand Rubbed Oil Finish

    Options:
    Body Woods: Alder
    Neck Woods: Maple
    4 and 5 string models in satin blue, satin amber, satin green, satin black and satin red
    Lined/Unlined Fretless

    Sent you a PM on this as well. Vol, Blend, Tone, the switch is series parallel and if you pull up on the tone knob it activates the mid contour for a quick slap tone. You can adjust the freq inside the control cavity.
