5 way / pots etc..

Hiya folks,

My rg550 has really crackly knobs and a dodgy 5 way switch.

What's the "best" 5way replacement?

schaller makes nice quality switches (Mega S model should work with RG), you can find them on stewmac. Also CRL, I believe stewmac has them as well.

Most Jems, J-Customs and high-end Prestige models come with a VLX91. It's the best IMO.
