I just got a picture of the beautful wooden knobs that Roger at THG Knobs (http://www.thgknobs.com) made for my upcoming Curbow bass. They are spalted maple with a mother-of-pearl dot on top. He was extremely helpful and went out of his way to find some wood that I thought would go very well with this bass and still not seem too boring, or detract too much from the body wood. PLus, the price was GREAT! Here's the bass: Here are the new knobs: I think they will end up looking pretty nice together.
