    Westone "The Rail"

    Ooh, a red one! Only ever saw them in black. That looks very nice.
  2. I had never seen one of these. Very nice.

    Knobs for unusual shaft

    They all seem to be more pedal or amp style knobs - I guess these pots tend to be used for this kind of devices rather than guitars. For instance: https://uk.farnell.com/w/c/fasteners-mechanical/knobs-accessories/knobs?shaft-type=d-shaft|flatted-shaft

    Knobs for unusual shaft

    But to answer the OP’s question, I believe these are called Flat Shaft pots or D Shaft pots. Searching on eBay for “D shaft guitar knob” returns a few hits.
  5. Oh, look, a brown pedal!! In addition to being brown, the DOD FX72 is a great flanger.

    Which brown pedals do you know...?

    The DOD bass stereo flanger FX72. Very nice flanger too.

    Alternatives to the Squier Bass VI

    The Schecter Ultracure is fitted with Ernie Ball Hellcat VI Custom Strings (90-75-56-44-34-24) as standard. Maybe your authentic sound is with light gauges

    Win A Free Set of NYXL!

    I currently use Rotosound Swing bass 66 strings. I'd like a set of D'Addario NYXL because I don't like tuning, I am rubbish at it, I spend ages getting that needle to stay in the middle. I could do with strings that have 131%greater tuning stability

    Fender '61 Flea Bass Woes

    That. And if the shop do nothing contact Fender UK directly, you never know. I have dealt with Fender UK after the shop that sold me a bass went under and they sent me spares no problem (but it was still under warranty).
  10. And if you want the full history, there is this Wikipedia article: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fender_Jaguar_Bass
  11. From my limited knowledge, just to get things going. The Jaguar bass first came as a Crafted In Japan (CIJ) instrument, it was a Jazz bass with all the switches, it came in various colours, Fiesta red being one. IDiscontinued. Then came the Made In America (MIA), or US standard, model. It was a PJ configuration, with all the switches and it came in Olympic white, some red (mystic red I think) and sunburst. Discontinued. Then there are the Made In Mexico (MIM) ones, with knobs only, no switches. That’s the ones you are interested in, but I don’t know much about them. They were PJ, came in different scales and colours. They were still in production and have been replaced by the Player range then. And then lots of Squiers.

    My Austin Hatchet Bass

    Never seen one of those. What are the switches for? On/Off for each pickup and Active/Passive or Series/Parallel?

    What is this Soviet craziness?

    Those switches on the OP’s bass though! Shame they don’t show what they look like when they’re down - looks like you may need to flick it back up by sliding your fingernail under it (or, God forbid, a pick/plec).

    Is that a good thing or a bad thing?

    NBD - Fender American Standard Jaguar

    Excellent choice, I have the same one 😁 They don’t come up for sale very often so well done for tracking one down - have fun with all the knobs and switches!
