    Guitar Center stocks these.

    I recommend the pots with a set screw and not the slip ons.

    Actually, I'm not looking to replace the pots, just the knobs themselves. It actually seems that I already have the slip-on variation. So I'd just go to a place and get slip on dome knobs?

    most of the Squiers come with the knobs you want .. push on chromes for splined/split shaft pots ... maybe just toss up a post in the 'Wanted' section of the classifieds, and somebody might even want to just swap with you ..

    Edit to add: .. the majority, if not all of these Squier chrome domes have the plastic splines inside .. they are lighter and tend to be easier on the split shaft pot .. lift off one of the strat style knobs you have on there, so you are aware of what you have .. I have the same bass, put a set of Fender top hat knobs on it for a while, but took them off and I just leave it without any

    PM me. I have a set you can have free. They came off my VM J, they should fit.
