Would anyone know where I could find flat or domed knobs that have a dot or mark of some sort on the top to help in seeing the position?

Why not get some standard knobs in the style you like, drill or mill [or have done] a dot where you want it on the top. If you need more contrast than a dot drilled in, you could put some colored laquer in the dot, then a dolop of epoxy. Or you could glue in a rhinestone or something..

eBay seller BEZDEZ has a bunch of different styles with the dot... and for a pretty good price. I buy a lot from them. Great Seller :!:

Just ordered two fron this seller.
Am i the only one who is bothered by this lack of a reference point on regular Tele knobs?

I always just put the set screw where I can see it with the vol or tone all the way up. That gives me enough visual range where it matters to me (I can look down and see if I have any more vol or treble left). Most tele players adjust by ear or by feel beyond that (IOW roll all the way down, then half up for a "5" setting).

Why not just use the set screw for a reference if your pots are solid shaft? less is more...

If the man wants dots on his knobs then let him have dots on his knobs. It's his guitar. :wink:

using the knobs would imply turning down; I want everything louder than everything else
