Yesterday I purchased a beautiful original red finished Travis Bean Artist (TB1000A). A later thin body serial # above 1,000. Lucky me got it for under a thousand dollars which I barely had. Everything is perfect and in nearly new condition except all four knobs are stripped. They are the solid black type. Anyone got a fix for this ? I hope so. Or would anyone sell a set? These are the solid black version which is what I would be looking for

3 ways to quick fix your problem.
1. Gently put a small screw driver between the split posts of the pot and slowly expand the opening.(Be careful or you will brake the shaft.)
or
2. Wrap a thin strip of black electrical tape around the top of the pot shaft and place the knob over it.
or
3. Place a thin layer of paper around the inside circumference of the knob and slowly place it over the pot shaft.

All 3 of these have worked for me as a temporary fix.

Peace
