    if your talkin new pots switches and wire...your lookin at about 5-10 per pot, a few bucks worth of wire, 5-20 for the switch, and a hour or so of labor..which really varies per shop between like 25 - 100 an hour.

    If you do it yourself you'll be looking at $3-5 per a pot, a couple bucks of wire $5-10 per a switch and $3-10 for the jack, this is quoting from stewmac.com

    You'll also need to pick up a soldering iron (radioshack $8, get either the 15w or the 25w, I suggest the 15w) and some solder (radioshack $3 "hi-tech" solder).
