You can ask Wine Country Sequential but from what I've hear replacement joysticks for them are rare as hen's teeth.

According to Wine Country's and Vintage Planet's websites, they are sold out of joysticks:

Good news (for you), is that VS's are nearly impossible to repair, so you might be able to find a dead one that could be parted out. Doesn't NIN have a dead VS?

I'll check the service manual and see if I can find a partname or information..
Then I'll see if I can find a new replacement :)

Hi Geir,

I purchased a replacement joystick for my VS a couple years back from these guys. Looks like they still have in stock. They are located in Korea and had no problems having it shipped to me in the US. I've purchased numerous stuff from them through the years.
Good luck!

Ok thanks!
I got your email as well :)

$90 is a lot for one joystick though :)
I'm gonna go and take a look at the VS and see if the pot is totally broken or just the shaft..
