skibum5545 Posted August 13, 2004 Report Share Posted August 13, 2004 I've put some thought into the idea of making my bass headless, and putting the tuners in the back of the body. To discover if this were in fact possible, I dissected one of my tuners (thanks silvertonessuckbutigotone!) and found that the tuning "knob" is 7/8" long, but only mounted on a 3/8" shaft; a 3/8" knob would fit in the bass, but the normal knob won't. So, I want to make/get some custom knobs. The only problem being, these things are mounted with a screw, going into a post with two square sides. Therefore, my custom knob would have to have a matching hole. How can I make this hole? Also, any ideas of how I can make the knobs themselves, or people who could machine them to specs?
