Where can I get Mustang-style "stove top" volume & tone knobs?

    Hi, I'm thinking about putting Fender "stove top" old-school style volume & tone knobs on a Telecaster Deluxe. Does anyone know where I can find good aftermarket replicas?

    Thanks, googling this is not helping me but I'm sure someone here knows where to go for these.

    I forgot to post a pic, just in case there's any question what these look like:

    Most places will list them as Fender Jazz Bass knobs. The Jazz bass has different sizes for the tone and volume knobs, but I don't know if the Mustang uses the larger or smaller size.

    The Jazz Bass knob set will work, you’ll end up with an extra smaller knob from the set. The larger knobs are the ones you want, same as a Mustang, which is also the same as a Jaguar.

    FYI these are for solid-shaft pots. They’re a great knob.

    You can just fill the middle of a split shaft with some chopstick or something,

    There are adapter sleeves built for fitting around a split shaft for set-screw knobs.

    That is fascinating. I've seen a lot of "different" guitars on this forum, but I've never seen a Tele with not only Mustang knobs but also the Mustang control plate! Thanks...

    thanks, I blocked in the old route, you can still see the outline in some light but I can live with it. Did that to a BSB Affinity, my first refin attempt
