    If you (or any of your friends) have any metal-working expertise you could make one out of whatever you want. Brushed stainless steel might look cool.

    Look for "stack-knob jazz bass control plate" and you should get a bunch of hits.

    Bass Parts Resource has actual fender ones (yes stack-knob). Look them up on the web.

    I seem to remember that Mike Lull sometimes makes J-basses with stack knobs. Maybe he'd sell you one.

    Edit: Just saw a couple for sale on Ebay.
