It’s the right value, but it doesn’t seem to be the same exact dimensions as the one linked from the Anatomy of a Fly page (which is also not the same as the OEM pot), which is the Bourns pot.

If you order it, let us know how it works out.

My FLY is refined & has a 500K single volume pot.. = easy to locate

I came across that one on Reverb & thought I might offer it up as an option for the pre refined asked about in this thread..
Did find one pot with the same dimensions etc but only had five pins instead of six in China??

I was just trying to help VJ for "Frequent Flyer's" in the Future
Came across this one which looks promising not sure if the threaded part is long enough to go thru the top & get a washer & nut on..??
Or if the knobs could be used without modification.. Wonder why they don't come with washers & nuts? Guess you reuse if they are the same?

Not long enough, pretty sure anyway.

You could try to fit a larger body dual 10k(?) with the right threads and run 6 wires.



Fwiw The refined are 500k because they have a different pcb.

One more crazy idea is to get some tubing, thread to match the pot, thread the outside for a nut, and open up the hole slightly. I think you need a few mm more in length.
