Question: Bongo Knobs

Question: Bongo Knobs

Did a search here and the last few threads on Bongo knobs got a little contentious…

My BFR Crescendo was delivered yesterday. This bass is a monster all of the way around – perfect weight, perfect balance and plays/sounds as good as it looks. And boy oh boy do I like the looks of this thing. Except for the black knobs. They are excellent quality but on this bass, they stick out like a sore thumb.

I’ve looked everywhere and cannot find anything that will fit. So far my options are to find a woodworker and have them custom make roasted maple ones to match the fretboard or paint the black ones preferably gold with a high quality model paint. Neither seems like a great solution but I’m not sure where else to turn.

Any advice or resources would be super helpful. TIA!
