    Default 5150iii Concentric Knob Mod

    I just wanted to give a heads up to whoever is interested. I contacted the Fender tech I use here in St. Louis about the concentric knob modification to my 5150iii. They were apparently given the go ahead to start the mods on 5/18. He told me to go ahead and bring the amp up. They are a little behind so it will be about three weeks.

    I was actually wondering if this was available just this morning. I've been realizing how useful it would be for my combo. Thanks!!

    Thanks for posting this... I'll be looking to get it done to my amp too. Being in Australia, it probably wont be available here until 2027 and will probably cheaper to buy a new amp with the concentric knobs already on it, but its good to know the ball is rolling.

    I had it done by a third party and had the EQ converted to concentric knobs as well.

    @blackandblue13 - how much is Fender charging?
