    Well, I know someone on here will have the answers to these.

    1) I have a 50's P-bass that has obviously newer domed Fender knobs on it than it originally came with. The knurling is finer than on the original early 50's editions. Does anyone make a repro set of these coarse-knurled dome-top knobs? I just can't see paying $200 for a pair of real ones, but I may have to go that route eventually.

    2) I had an old EB-3 with the infamous (mudbucker) big ol' pickup on it. I actually found the deep sound had a certain sonic usefullness when used to deepen-up parts in recording. Again, I've seen the DiMarzio Model 1 and the Epiphone look-alike versions of this pickup all over, but I'm afraid they wont have that deep bottom, that they've designed these pickups with a more focused tone as is the current desired sound. What pickup should I buy to get that sound, without paying through the nose for a 60's Gibson original?

    Thanks a lot. :bassist:

    Well, I can see that Bob W. thinks the Epi has the full-pit o'mud sound... maybe I'll buy his old pickup?

    No info on vintage-correct coarse-knurled knobs, huh?
