    what have you guys experienced or what do you expect the cost to be to get a knob replaced on a P/J pickup setup. I figure it can't be that much. For a pro to do it what would it cost and what do new P/J setups cost?

    I assume it's the potentiometer that's broken and not the actual knob.

    The part is about $5 and I'd guess it'd take about a half hour of chargable time to replace it if nothing else goes wrong. Somewhere in the $20-30 range sounds reasonable. If your tech is fast and will charge for less than a half hour, maybe a couple bucks less.

    Or if you're handy with a soldering iron, you can do it yourself in about twenty minutes.
