So I'm not getting on with the rail pickup in the bridge of my mustang and I was planning on replacing it with an old strat pickup I had spare; so i thought I might as well replace the pots to 250k ones whilst I'm at it.

one of the reasons for this is I got the current pots on ebay from china for cheap and whilst they do technically work, they crackle and have a limited range where they actually make a difference.

So does anyone have a recc for places that sell reliable pots, (I think I need the smaller alpha type too)

Thanks.

I usually look for alpha pots on ebay.
Axesrus are good too, like Tim said.
