Bass
“Bass control plates” is probably a bit of a catch all name to be honest, and it’s probably fair to say that there are more basses out there with metal control plates then there are electric guitars – but we only carry the more common models, such as the 3 and 4 hole versions seen on the Fender® Jazz® bass.

We also carry a few pre-wired versions, ready to drop into your bass – all wired here at Axesrus towers in the UK.

Suitable for Tele®
The Telecaster® control plate is an often overlooked innovation when it comes to guitars – it seems a fairly innocuous part – just a hot dog shaped piece of metal, but the idea was pretty innovative back in the day, allowing access to the electronics without having to work in a cavity routed in the back of the body.

Nowadays, there are a few different sizes, in a great range of colours and materials, some with beautifully elaborate engraving, but they all follow this similar idea.

We also produce our own pre-wired assemblies, loaded with top end electronics, ready to drop into your guitar to really help nail that perfect Tele® tone.

Bass Control Plate - 4 Hole Bass Control Plate - 3 Hole Control Plate - Suitable for Fender® Musang® Bass

Following on from the "3 Hole" version, the "4 hole" version became the standard part used on basses from 1962 until the modern era.

The “3 hole” version of the bass control plate appeared at the very birth of the instrument in 1960, and ran through all of 61 and into the early part of 1962. Conversely, most of the ’62 re-issues sport this style of plate, whilst the majority of the originals seem to come with the “4 hole” version.

This is a Steel control plate, immaculately plated, to fit a Fender® Mustang® Bass
