    Mouser has 'em...or ones REAL close. Call them for a catalog....hundreds of pages of electo-geek stuff, plus some other cool stuff.

    Allparts doesn't carry them...they're a specialty knob that I haven't been able to find....the Mouser knobs are REALLY close...I've bought several sets, and they're as close as you are going to find without buying them directly from Fodera.

    A few people will do custom knobs too, if you dont mind wooden ones. Pete Skjold and Roger and THG would be my first calls if your into something like that.

    may be the culture barrier... i feel that some one is trying very hard to make some jokes on my question.well i cant get it at all..hahaha.. i think the only common language between us is the bass note. and i still hope this is a peaceful world filled with groove..so come on.. just do whatever is right then.. Anyway.. thanks alot for all the input.
    About mouser... still have the parts no? may be i shall just give them a try.
    But the way.. may be a bit out of topic.. As an Architect. i have a pretty good connection with the pro model shop, and they are going to laser cut some wood for me.. if i can find those "knobs"(come on guys another chance to you to try to make fun of it) they can modify it with some wood cap..ng....seems interesting.

    Hello gentle people,

    www.hotwire-bass.com (go to the shop and look under harwood knobs)

    are making beautiful knobs in all colors and sizes. I've got a set of ebony minis and they're just perfect.

    cheers

    I'm looking for a brass-knob with an indicator (for a 3-way PU-switch) myself. Any ideas where to get hold of one?
