I am thinking of putting some GFS Lil Puncher XL's in a 2005 MiM Tele. I think I have to change the pots from 250k to 500k. Will the Alpha pots on the GFS site work (import size), or do I need to get some American sized ones from somewhere else?

All Fenders reguardless of price that use a 250k pot use the same CTS 250k pots. The import pots have a smaller shaft size. Stay with the standard sized pots unless you wanna change the control panel.

When you install Lil Punchers, do you have to change both pots to 500K, or just the tone pot?
I am looking forward to trying these pickups. When I first got this guitar, I thought the pickups were pretty good. Now they sound noisy and kind of percussive without interesting tone. I am hoping that the Lil Punchers will be quiet, and more interesting.

I tried using alphas in an experiment with different control plate configuarations where space was a premium, 3 pots for example.
3 of these pots died on me so I'll be making do with CTS in the future.
