    After looking to buy marked Tele knobs, I could not find, I took the knobs off my Tele and marked each knob with a metal punch , which produced a nice dimple. Then I dotted each with a sharpie and reattached. It looks and works great, giving me a reference point.

    Strat knobs fit on split shaft pots. Teles are solid shaft. Muddy waters used amp knobs

    I've found that even with knobs with numbers I still go by ear.

    Using the set screws is a great idea though.

    Another user of small chicken head knobs. I like the look as well.
