I am also interested in pickup rings, need one for PRS 22 fret custom and one for Les Paul. Chrome or stainless would probably be the best fit for existing hardware.

FWIW, I bought a set of three pots (25k, 500k, 250k/500k) from Leo within the last few weeks and received them quickly. They were exactly as described, and he was great to deal with. Thanks again, Leo!

I'm looking for a good 25K volume pot that has a stiffer turn "feel". The one I'm using works fine but I think it turns too easily and I usually want to make small adjustments in volume. It is easy to overturn especially when in the middle of a song/solo.

Thanks,
Jim

Jim, i've got a 16mm 25k alpha in my guitar for that reason. These are the pots typically used infx pedals. They have that stiffer turn to them.

HA! I thought I was the only freak who actually paid attention to the detail of my volume pot having a good stiff resistance on turning. Glad to know that I'm not actually crazy (...........well) ....Mine has one that is perfect and it took like 4 pots to get there. I think it was from stew mac.

My tone pot for the center pickup is a different story, it is as loose as a 2 dollar whore and is bothering the heck out of me. Although on that pot, it is usually either on 10 or 0 (0 with the D+ for the horn distortion), but even still it bothers me......

Edit, and Hogans right, mine is an Alpha too:

Alpha basically makes 98% of all the pots on the market today. it is not surprising to see so many out there . CTS from Tube Amp Depot is a good source if you don't want to spend for the RV4N Mil. spec. pot like Jerry used. I believe the those CTS pots are even cheaper than the Stew Mac price, well,I guess anything is cheaper than Stew Mac as a rule
