Live from the UK, it's Buzz Fretboard with yet another fascinating question which only the good folks at TalkBass.com can answer! Got a bass that I'm refurbishing. The electronics are, in a word, missing. So I'm thinking to myself "Self...why is it I can get a 500k pot for cheap at the corner electronics shop, but from some guitar supply shops they're 5 times as much?" Then it occurred to me: if there's a difference in price, is there a difference in construction, or tolerance, etc in what I can get at Radio Shack vs what I can get from, say, Warmoth? You have no idea how much I look forward to hearing from you all.
