Hello community. smile.gif I need a bit of help.

I have been researching online about what I need for replacement of control knobs on my bass pictured here. You will notice the black plastic knobs against the otherwise gold hardware. I would really like to get some nice matching knobs, but I'm not sure what to get. For example, I read you need to know the pot style. Is that the size of the thing that you fit knob onto? How do I know? I'm not really sure what I'm looking for as I am new to this. Ibanez's website doesn't seem to provide that information (or at least doesn't make it very easy). I can't even find out what year my bass is.



I think I found some websites that might have it, but how do I know that's the right size? And I do need to find 2 big knobs and 3 smaller ones. Hmm... I just thought, would I be able to find a gold switch too? A Guitar Center rep was supposed to get back with me and he never did. That's not the first time that has happened. dry.gif

Do you think I can find some matching hardware that wouldn't be a slightly different color than the bridge and tuners? I guess, if was it wouldn't be too bad, perhaps nice. Also, a side question: has anybody ever bought an instrument and noticed grimy or tarnished looking tuners? I think the bridge was kinda like that too, but when I took some alcohol and a rag to it the discoloration mess went away. huh.gif I could have sworn that bass wasn't used.

Any help you can provide on finding gold knobs, and perhaps a gold switch, would be appreciated.

Thanks smile.gif
Brandon

Not sure about gold switches, but site seems to be the go-to place for random guitar parts.
