I know this has been covered before, but I hope that maybe some companies have started reproducing the original 500k Centralab pots that were used in the late 50s Les Pauls. It would be great to have something which is so close to the real thing that it's indistinguishable from the original. Things I'm after are: the correct value (preferably slightly above 500k), right audio taper, the right friction, the same materials / magnetic properties etc. Real pots from '59 are now 200-300 USD, and there's no way for me to tell if they're real and untouched. I can't imagine that the components are that expensive but to have a run that makes money for a vendor must be quite an investment? Some examples of pots that I've heard are good: - Mojotone - RS Guitarworks Superpots - PRS or Hamer CTS pots - any I forgot?
