I need to get a replacement nut for my B-206SM. Could you provide the measurements and a source to get a replacement? I want to make sure I get the right part. I don't know what to buy.
Thank you for your time,

Is it possible to make a lighter weight 6 string bass ?
Hi Tony, Yes it is possible however the body and neck size on a 6 string bass is larger than a 4 or 5 string so it is naturally predisposed to being heavier. Something like a swamp ash or alder body might be able to reduce the weight, but that would be much more expensive. We used to make an RB-1006 model which was really light. It's not currently being produced but you might be able to find one used or still new at a dealer. It is much higher price than the B-206.
I recently picked up the B-206SM and love it. I am considering changing the knobs. Could you tell me what size and type the volume, balance, & eq knobs are? Are the pots solid shaft or split shaft? I'm looking at parts sources and don't know what to get. Thank you.
Hi RJD, All the knobs are split shaft and they are a standard size for import style pots. You can install any type of dome knob or plastic push on knob.
Ok, very cool. I've order some Q-parts Natural Abalone Knobs with pearl black finish to go with the black nickel.
Hi RJD, Great!
