    Tried pj, no dice.
    Ordered a set from guitronics, wrong size.

    Going by a schematic from here, one pickup is reversed. That was an easy fix.

    Prior to my ownership P volume knob was replaced with a short shaft. It's bent now, so I need to replace it.

    I think I'm going to pull the J volume if I can get a proper size blend pot.

    Anyone know a good source for pots?

    I'm up in the air about pickups, there's a set of EMGs in it. GZR that much better??

    First of all,what kind of bass is this?
    I think you'd have better luck replacing the whole preamp that just replacing the pots.
    "Korean haz'?

    Spector ns-2a, so the preamp would be the hazlabs knockoff

    Have you contacted Sheldon (SNCpre) over in the Spector club? He builds a great Haz clone. I have one, very nice. Maybe he has what you need, or knows where you find it.

    Talking to him now.

    Basically pinged everyone I could find that was building Haz clones.
    Trying my hardest to keep this bass down to just a pickup swap and preamp repair.
    Kinda reminds me of guys that are into Model T or Model A Ford's.

    If you love it, then you fix the flathead instead of dumping it for a small block Chevy at the first sign of trouble.

    Talkbass is such a good resource for niche basses like the NS-2A.
    Who knew Cor-tek could actually build anything people would value nowadays?
