    I looked at Allparts and Bestbassgear and couldn't seem to find them.

    Those aren't quite them (as you noticed), but thanks for looking....that's pretty nuts if they're charging $12 a pop; you can have wooden ones made for that price.
     
  3. So why not step up the quality of the knobs and have a set of gaboon ebony knobs made in the same shape? Why you would put plastic on a bass like that beats me.

    If you're going to go first class I can't think of a better way.
     
  4. +1. I would definatly go wooden knobs, but still, if those plastic ones are what YOU want, go for it. Hell, its your bass...

    Because I really like the look and feel of the knobs on my Elricks (I need a set for an Elrick I purchased used that doesn't have the same ones- the one in the picture obviously has them already). Not to mention I only like wood knobs if they are of an interesting wood....gaboon ebony knobs are pointless for me anyways, because I wouldn't want to pay more for something that's as black as a plastic knob.
     
  6. Good point, although I do say go for a better wood. Which Elrick are we tlaking about? Your red one, or darker one (is it a walnut?)

    My red bolt-on- all of my other Elricks already have the knobs I like; I got the red one used and it came with weird rubbery knobs.
