  • Best place in UK for pots/caps/jacks/switches?

    Does anyone know of somewhere over here in the UK that sells all the above mentioned parts at good prices?

    Allparts seem to be the only place I can find, even then it'd cost me about 60 to completley re-wire my LP (it has long shaft pots, if it makes a difference)

      It is the Allparts UK web site you've looked at isn't it?

      http://www.allparts.uk.com/

      I bought stuff from them when they were called Pincotts and I don't remember it being that expensive.

      Have you considered ordering a complete electronics upgrade kit from RS?:

      They ship internationally, and it might work out cheaper. Plus you can get some interesting optional extras, wiring instructions etc. They get a lot of good reviews at the Les Paul Forum. I'm thinking of trying one soon.

        Imp - I didn't see any long shaft pots on touchstone's site, although the wood section got me thinking about building myself another guitar!! (I emailed them though)

        Simon - It was the UK Allparts I was looking at, although RS is looking like a very good option, for like $30 I can get the lot, and they take paypal, even better.

        Thanks guys.
