    I was wondering if anyone knew where I may be able to get a custom knob made... The Electrocoustimatic needs a volume control for the piezo on board, and what I'd really like to do is put that on a concentric volume control along with the master volume because I don't want to drill any new holes. Trouble is, the Gretsch arrow knobs, which to me are a part of the look, are too large to fit in any of the "outer" knobs I've come across. Anyone know where I might be able to get a custom knob made affordably?

    Find someone with a 3-D printer. Tell them what you want. I think they can make pretty much anything fairly easily.

    3-d is probably the best route. Setup and all that with a molding company wouldn't be cheap. Is there a way to modify the shaft and use a Gretsch knob. Speaking out my ass since I really have no idea what you are doing.:D

    Mostly I'm just trying to find a concentric volume knob where the center knob can be my Gretsch arrow. All the "outer" concentric knobs I've seen so far is too narrow to fit the Gretsch knob inside of them. I need an ID of at least .9" as the arrow knob is .88".

    I've been on the hunt for a basic brass (not polished, not gold) dome-type volume knob for awhile. If any one has any tips on where to find one, hook me up :thumb:
