    Looking for a coarse knurl, long shaft, 1 Meg pot w/audio taper. Can’t find one. Why not? Do you know where to find one?

    Had to check this thread just to see if it was legal.

    Carry on.....

    A long shaft like this?

    That only exists with a smooth shaft because you're supposed to cut it to size.





    Unless you meant something like this:

    Haha!!! More like the second one although I appreciate the suggestion. I think “coarse knurl” precluded the first. In any event, it’s for a LP style guitar so the longer threaded part needs to go through the wood.

    Did he just say long shaft and wood?

    All the places I've checked only have long shaft up to 500k or the 1meg are linera. I'm checking with a supplier I've deal with before and see what he says.

    Not sure you need that long shaft, I used a regular shaft on a Chinese LP copy, nothing special. Guitar also weighs 9 lbs. something. But you may want to break off the tab on the side if the guitar doesn't have a hole for it and don't use a nut at the bottom.

    That’s what I found. Don’t ask on my behalf. I was hoping someone here knew already. I asked Bourns the question via email and maybe will get an answer. Maybe it’s just that nobody wants them?

    I have seen quite a few 1 meg long shaft pots, but have to admit all I have looked at were linear tapers.

    I wonder if a linear taper works ok on a 1 Meg? Now I’m just curious.
