In the process of getting my Bean (#173) set up correctly. But one of the volume knobs is missing. The other three are of the "bell" style with an aluminum bottom (part closest to the body) and a black barrel above with an aluminum detented center piece inserted on the very top. There are small marks engraved into the aluminum part. Inside the knob it says "Japan" and "Toya". I bought this guitar used in 1978 so I don't know if these are the original knobs or not. Any input on this issue would be appreciated. I haven't had any luck finding a replacement knob that is the same as the other three. Does anyone have a source for these or any for sale? Thanks so much!
