    There's tens of hundreds of foreign guitar-knob sites that have them. I might buy some wood knobs for my natural bass, soon, though.

    Jazz bass knobs don't have a brass insert.

    I was interested, too, so I took the domain name from the bad link, loaded it, and searched from there.

    Here is the knob section of the website: http://www.smallbearelec.com/Categories.bok?category=Knobs

    Here are the large (volume control) white Jazz knobs: http://www.smallbearelec.com/Detail.bok?no=830

    Here are the small (tone control) white Jazz knobs: http://www.smallbearelec.com/Detail.bok?no=761

    The smallbearelec.com knobs cost 75¢ each, while the ones made by Mr. Rhoney cost $15.00 each, I'd be tempted to try my luck on the former. However on closer inspection of the photos, the large white knobs from smallbearelec.com are not quite standard Jazz shape, unlike Mr. Rhoney's – which appear to be perfect.
  9. yea sorry bout the bad link ty for being smart enough to figure it out anyway ill post again when I get the knobs with pics
