Default Quality pots with "notches" at 12 o clock?

I'm building ESP's pre amp with tone controls, and for the tone and balance controls I want what many commercial recievers have where theres a little notch the pot rests at when its positioned at 12 o clock.

Do you know if such pots exsist to DIYers, or where I might find them?

I can get Alps pots, both Black Beauty and blue ones for balance, with a center dent. $30 and $20 USD respectively.

Don't know about the colour but RK18 from Alps also does that for their audio taper pots available for balance, tone and volume.

Try percyaudio.com and partsconnexion.com. It's very hard to get anything directly from Alps or Nobel.
