    Hi everyone.

    I’m trying to help out a buddy of mine. He is a left-handed player and recently purchased a Fender MIJ Jazzmaster.

    He is trying to upgrade the volume pot to 1MEG. For a reverse taper (also known as reverse log, anti log, or lefty pot), all he can find are 250k or 500k pots. Does anyone know where my friend could purchase a 1MEG pot? Thank you so much in advance.

    No... I never found 1M-RA or C1M pots (reverse audio or reverse log), only C500K at max... That said, I did not made exhaustive search !

    You may be able to find 3M-RA pots because they are used on some Fender amp tremolos.

    The volume pot on the AO’60s is Linear anyway according to the service manual... another part of the JM’s wacky charms!! I’d suggest just trying a linear 1M pot.
