    :D All of the English people reading this will be very disappointed/relieved to know that I am talking about volume and tones knobs and not any other kind of "knob" ;) . Hopefully though, it got your attention.

    So, can anyone give me any suggestions please, as to where on Earth I might find a chrome/rubber volume and tone knob set for a Fender Elite 1 Precision? I've just bought one and it's 100% original, apart from having the wrong knobs on.

    Here's the kind that I need:


    Thanks in advance.....
  2. Email fender, they might have them. Either that or ebay.

    Thanks for the suggestions! I assumed that the parts were discontinued now, so I haven't tried Fender yet, but I'll look into it.

    I have scoured eBay (and will continue to) for the past week, but haven't found any yet. Sorry, I should have mentioned this in the original post. :meh:

    As well as those sources, I have tried WD Music, Angela Music and numerous European musical instrument outlets.

    Any other ideas folks?

    Have a lot of patience. Check Ebay frequently. Post in the Wanted:Bass Guitars, Amps and Accessories forum. Try posting at the Fender forum. Eventually you will find them but it may take a while.

    I spent more than a year finding parts for a '76 Gibson Thunderbird, but finally found everything.
  5. You could always contact Roger at THG www.thgknobs.com if you fancy something real different....

    I realise that this isn't what you asked for, but these wooden knobs are really cool and are available in a huge array of woods/colours.
  6. The first thing that came to my mind when I read the topic was "Blink 182". LOL
  7. Sounds to me like a great excuse to buy a Fender with the knobs you do need on it, and swap them over :bag:

    Those are going to be hard to replace. I did see a set on ebay a few months back(they went for around $30 USD). But that is the only set Ive seen in a few years. Keep looking, Ive been looking for parts for an old fender for 4 years,in the last 2 months I"ve found a pickup and Pickguard. Now I just need pots. I think some knobs For yours may surface sooner or later. Good luck in your search.
