Default looking for a dual pot, with concentric shaft with values of 100K and 50K

I hope this is the right place for this, im new here. sorry if not,

anyway im building a conversion for a line Variax guitar.

Im putting the guts into a strat style body.

I want three knobs, but the variax volume and tone knobs have odd valued pots 100K and 50K

but I also want to put them both on one knob, so im looking for a dual pot concentric shaft with 100K and 50K.

Any idea where I could find this? Im striking out.

Thanks guys.

I'm not suprised, that sort of thing is probably only available for custom order. You could try adapting something off the shelf, quite often you can dismantle the open frame style pots, so you could try buying otherwise identical 50K and 100K pots, and substitute one track.

I'm just guessing here but if it's a log pot you need you might get something acceptable by using a dual lin pot and putting different value resistors in parallel with each of the two tracks.
