Replacement Knob for JTV-59 3 Way Switch
by adessmith on 2013-01-25 06:21:01

I need to get a replacement for the plastic piece on the 3 way switch.

Mine has a small crack, and I'm sure its going to break off soon.

Dont these things come in more than one thread size? Does anyone know what size it is, or where to get the proper replacement?

i can tell you that it's not the same size as the typical epiphone/gibson switch... i was going to update mine, and bought one... i never bothered pursuing it further since it was purely cosmetic in my case.

Looks like stewart mac sells 2 different ones:

Iwould assume the 8-32 is the epiphone/gibson one you said will not work.
I bought a nut at a hardware store which is M4 .70 pitch. It is too large to fit the switch.

So it's not a standard thread for a switch... now what?
I submitted a support case with Line 6, and I still havent heard anything yet.

Came across the following site a while back -- don't know it it will do the deal, but another place to look -- the Epi import switches are smaller than Gibson Switchcraft switches and metric....
