    I am considering a swap from standard dome knobs to tele deluxe knobs on my Affinity... both of my Epis have Stewmac indicator pointers installed... I kind of like the ease of volume/tone set that they allow... I am looking at the various resources for knob dimensions to determine if these pointers for speed/top hat knobs are large enough for the tele deluxe knobs... does anyone know?

    I was just looking for the same knobs last night for my Affinity Tele that has an upgraded USA harness, CTS pots and USA 3-way switch. Some knobs are for USA-sized CTS pots, others are for "Import" sized, some are for splined shafts still others for smooth shafts which require that the knob have a set-screw.

    Best bet is to message a seller before making a purchase. In some cases you can buy a set of two, one Vol, one Tone, others are sold separately and I've seen some in a package of four, two Vol, two Tone. I'm not sure if they make them for "Import" sized pots.

    I am looking at the Mojotone vol/tone knobs... they also offer a 1-10 amp knob with set screw that may be a bit smaller... but no vol/tone logo...
