    Looks like one of their distributors is DigiKey. Just another reason why they're awesome. :)

    It's the telephone-book-thick electronics catalog. You can buy all manner of components, tools, parts, knobs, etc. It's like the McMaster-Carr catalog for electronics. Everything you could possibly need, as long as you know what you're looking for.

    The question is, which sizes does Roger use?

    DigiKey is just down the road from here, in my home town of Thief River Falls, MN.

  12. Well when you look at this pic..

    You'll see that on a standard pot the knobs diamater is slightly smaller than the pot itself. A standard pot is about 7/8 of an inch, and the JD-75's are 3/4 inch diameter. The next size up (JD-90) would have a larger diameter than a standard pot, so I'm almost positive that he uses these...

    I don't know about sexy, but I do think they are nice knobs. I think they are part of the whole look of a Sadowsky.

    Yeah, those "DDSPT" knobs are a really cool idea. I know I could use them... I can't tell you how many times I've hit the neck volume knob on my GL Jazz during a show and practically turned the neck pickup off in doing so.
