A friend of mine gave me his Monoprice Route 66 Goldtop (their Les Paul copy). I think he paid $90 for it new but he thought it was too heavy and when a pot went out, he offered it to me for the price of shipping. I haven't received it yet but he claims it was amazing for a 100 bucks (it is a bold on neck), a lot of Internet reviews agree (and I believe everything I read on the internet ) since it's free we'll see what I can do with it, but I know I will have to change at least one pot, so I might as well change them all, and the switch while I'm in there since I read reviews saying the switch is not very solid. Also the wiring is "rotated 90 degrees" with both volumes in the top row. so where do you get your pots, switches, etc... from? Some "boutique" suppliers offer kits/harnesses but the prices seem pretty high for what's in it (I guess the vintage correct wire was carefully stocked for years by their grandmother or something). I'm OK with just "good" pots, not really going after the "best", and "regular" multi-strand wire is fine. do you get your stuff from the like of Allparts or GFS, or go straight to generic electronic suppliers like Mammoth or Mouser? Bonus question, is it worth making the coils splittable? (not sure if the PUs in the guitar are 2 or 4 wires yet). My Nighthawk is splittable and I use that a lot, but it's got pretty weird pickup combos. given that I have a few guitars. Or if I find cheap P90s I may swap the humbuckers for P90s as part of this project.
