any idea where i can get CTS 500k mini pots?

alpha minis seem commonly available. but i can see cts minis offered only in some european site.

and any comparisons on the quality of alpha vs cts?

i'm intested in changing the electronics on my old mij washburn hb35 - 335 clone. i tried the CTS short shaft but it doesn't seem to go in through the F-hole - though somebody claimed to have precisely done that! not sure how they did it.

appreciate any pointers.

In my experience Alpha are not as high quality as cts - BUT - IMHO they are good enough for many applications including the volume/tone pots for non-pro guitars.

I'd just it. If it breaks in 10 years, just put a new one in.
