    I have the EMG BQC system which has two concentric pots and I'm not liking the plastic knobs. You can't turn one without turning both, plus I don't like the look.

    Any tips on where I can get metal knobs that fit EMG concentric pots?

    Thanks Nino, but the ones from Guitar Parts Resource do not fit EMG pots...not even close. The shaft hole in the knobs is teeny tiny, about half the size of a pencil. Wasted $23 on those.

    Does anyone know of stacked knobs that will fit EMG pots for sure?

    Did you buy the solid shaft or split shaft ones? Split shaft are smaller.

    I guess they are split shaft, but it does not specify a difference on their website. The holes are tiny, much smaller than even a normal non-stacked pot.

    Anybody need a good deal on 2 sets of black stacked knobs that do not fit EMG pots?

    I've used them on EMG pots all the time with no problems

    I know this thread is ages old but one more time... which knobs will owrk on those plastic EMG pots>? are they special will only certain knobs fit?

    I just tracked down a super ass tiny hex wrench and I want to change the pots and from what I've read they are different. What do they call EMG's particular pot is it metric? split shaft? other?
