    I just ordered a push/push knob for my jazz bass which i will be wiring in series/paralell. I was wondering where i can get one of the fender s-1 knobs meant for the push push pot.

    I just had S/D SJB II's installed in my jazz bass and wanted to know the same thing. I can't find them anywhere.

    1. The S-1 knob is not push pull but "push push". While the outer portion of the knob is for volume control the center is a push button only for S-1 series and parallel modes.
    2. Fender will only sell them as a replacement for S-1 on a Bass that came from Fender with it on it already.
    3. Just use a standard knob for the push pull switch.

    Call Fender direct at 480 596-9690 and ask if you can get the pushbutton knob for S-1

    BTW, can you tell me where you got the part and the part number for your Push Push switch. I would like to look at it and see if something might be available.

    They just use a standard knob, on the S1 switch the middle of the knob pushes down.

    Yes, it is easier to tell the position but the push/push is quick and easy to use.

    The Fender S-1 does use a special knob where the center pushes the switch and outer portion controls the volume.
    For your purposes, the switch you are using requires just a standard knob. While not as "kewl" as the fender it is just as functional and will probably give far less trouble than the Fender counterpart. I feel Fender put too much into its switch that can go wrong.
    Just my opinion and I am sticking to it.

    I agree, that PUSH/PUSH from basspartsresource doesn't require that special fender knob. It looks like it's a standard push switch (like the Les Pauls had a one point) where you just put a normal knob on there, and push it in to activate it, and it springs back to position.
