It's a 1K linear pot with a carbon track. You can replace it with any 1K linear pot that fits the same bushing - get your calipers out and measure it.

In terms of the pot itself, it's nothing special - just a commercial-grade 1K pot wired as a variable resistor.

Isnt the triangle insignia on the back of the pot Matsushita Electric,s logo?

If so, that makes it a Panasonic potentiometer!

Measure the pot in all dimensions. Firstly, measure the bush thread's width. Then check the maximum depth available to fit a new pot (getting vintage parts from Panasonic is harder than major dental surgery). Check the shaft height and width, i.e. that your knob will fit the new pot.

I am supposed to be working on some SL110s soon. If they need new pots (they usually do) I'll let you know of a replacement. It's an easy job btw. Mouser / Allied / Digi-key will all sell pots that should work - just make sure you don't order the wrong one.
