Hi All,
I have an x-145 in met blue and the knob for the 3 way switch (looks like a 5 way switch) broke off many moons ago. Recently I started to clean her up and decieded to try and find the knob that would finish the job. I tried to use a fender switch knob but it is different and does not stay on. Any suggestions?? Thanks for any help.....Bill

Hm, I haven't replaced one of those yet. I would look at Gibson-style knobs, and see if you can find a variant that's 'import style' in case that's different the way knobs are.

Try the one on the bottom left here:
