    I have searched quite a bit for these with no luck. With all the JMP/ 800 2204s still working out there I'm surprised I cannot find them. Lots of PC mount, but no lugged. Anybody know where to go? My amp guy had a 24K or 25K he thought would work, but I was afraid it would change the sound?

    I don’t think thar is a 22 k pot . A 25 k pot is what you use . The schematic might say 22k . The 25 k pot will make no difference in sound

    Yes the Schematic does read 22K. Thanks.

    I just read that the 800s with the wired pots have solid shafts and for some reason I thought mine were knurled so I'm going to have to look when I get home. If it is solid, I found some.

    A slightly larger pot value will just give you a little tiny bit more range in the tone control. The difference between 22K and 25K is negligible.
