The diagram is on Pages 8 and 9 of this PDF:

Here's a more generic diagram for hooking up the Acousti-Phonic:

One has the option to solder the Graphtech elements directly to the Powerchip, as well.

Hey I need to replace the dual pot on my 1998 Deluxe. It just crumbled apart after all these years. It looks like its not sourced so this is a shot in the dark...

Anyone know a US replacement? Or can you provide me with any info on the pot because I dont know anything about it. I dont need the dial (unless I do), I just need the pot, or some info. Please help if you can.

@TimmyP, per the first page of this thread, it’s a stereo/dual gang 10k audio taper pot with 25mm long shaft, 9mm bushing diameter, 6mm shaft diameter. An eBay search for a 10k stereo pot brings up a few contenders but, as you say, none shipping from within the US.

Here’s the product page for the original Fly pot (though they don’t seem to be keeping up with the site security certification): https://tocos.com/products/potentiometers-7-mm-9-mm
Here’s a bourns pot with a 20mm shaft:

Note that if you source a pot that has a few mm shorter shaft and the knob ends up not having enough to grab on to, you can make up the difference by carefully thinning its mount on the inside of the control cavity with a forstner bit (something I’ve had to do with a few of my Flys after receiving eBay pots that ended up having shorter shafts than was specified in the listing).

Hi everyone,
First time poster here. I've got a USM-era Graphtec refined fly deluxe that I am planning on replacing the faulty factory pots and switches on. From reading on possible replacement parts on this page I have a couple questions:

1. Does the Three-way magnetic pickup switch (on-on-on) [original by C&K] have to be an exact match in model number from the link: "7211T1CGE"? I have been studying the chart and am not sure if it is only the dimensions of the switches' parts or also the materials and features that matter.

This one on ebay seems to fit the bill, although there is no model#:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/252267874328?h ... SwxN5WWJGg

2. Is there a special or specific type of electrical wire to use in case one needs replacing?

Thanks for making this list and for your help

Hi @NailCommunication—great question. The switch we have spec’d there will work, but it’s not the only option. The one you linked seems fine to me—the on-off configuration of them switch is the important thing.

Any type of good-quality wire should do the trick as long as it’s wired correctly (see wiring guides here)
