    I'm looking for black plastic tone and volume knobs (though they don't have to say anything at all) that have ridges or texture on the outside. They need to be push-on to fit Fender-style pot shafts.

    Like one of these:

    It seems like all of the knobs I can find in this style are smooth on the outside. If anyone has a source for these, I would really appreciate it!

    Thanks XSSIVE. Those look like a decent compromise. Have you used them? It looks like the o-rings are set into grooves.

    Seems like someone must cast some of these knobs with ridges on the outside for more grip, though. Maybe not.

    :dunno

    DRS may have hit on what you need.
    For me tho, the old Ibanez Sure-grip knobs are the best for having a real actual rubber grip-strip to them.
    Not that popular, not that available, but they are out there.
