    I need to convert an EMG 5 knob system into a 4 knob system. I have been looking for a dual concentric pot with a linear taper at 50K ohms. I have been unsuccessful finding the right parts. Anyone know of any good suppliers for these? I need knobs as well. Any help is appreciated.
     
  2. Some of these types of pots are hard to come by. I know the aguilar OBP-3 is available with a stacked bass/treble and that the aguilar takes 50k linear pots on the EQ. You might try emailing someone like www.bestbassgear.com. I really can't say that I've run across a concentric 50k linear and I've been looking at a lot of parts recently. Maybe one of the more experienced luthiers has a good suggestion. My only other suggestion would be to try www.digikey.com or www.newark.com that are straight electronics dealers.

    Aguilar sells some, as their OBP-3 preamp requires 50K pots. I've got a couple of their 50K dual / concentric pots laying around. Lemme know if you want one.
