help getting new parts

So i would like to replace the pots and jack in my 350 and was wondering if anyone could recommend a good push/pull or push/push pot for both the tone and volume and a good reliable jack too if it really matters in the long run. Also who makes good caps? any help would be awesome

Re: help getting new parts

Best push/pull pots I ever tried are the dimarzio ones. Also I had modified the tone one, by opening its wafer and scratching at the end, into a no-load one. Really good.
Be careful as they are ultra hard to solder on them. You might want to engage some kind of tip like presented here : http://guitarnuts2.proboards.com/thr...rzio-type-push

DiMarzio uses re-branded CTS pots and CRL switches.

Dillon, I use this place exclusively: I use oak switches, CTS pro pots, and recently started using the polypropylene caps........I like them so far. The switchcraft 1/4x1/4 jacks work great. They have a nice positive engaging feel. I used one on my RG2XXV.

Re: help getting new parts

You can do what you want without a push-pull. You can do it with a 5-way multi-pole switch. The difference between audio and linear taper is how much signal is left when the pot is turned down to half-way. A linear taper will be 50%, an audio taper will be closer to 35%. most of the signal is affected before 50% travel.
