Fellas: I'm working on a project bass and the differences I've found in loaded control plates is overwhelming. I've seen loaded ones on ebay and amazon for anywhere from ten bucks to fifty bucks, while I've seen unloaded plates for 25 bucks for just the plate! There's just too much to choose from and I'm sort of a newb. I know I can get 250k pots for about 7 bucks each. I can get a plate for a few bucks. I can assemble it myself. But what's with the variety of choices out there? I'll spend what I have to to get quality parts, but is there anything I should avoid? I should probably get Fender parts wherever possible, but I'm sure Fender doesn't manufacture this stuff, as I've seen every knockoff possible for sale out there. If anyone can help me focus my search, I'd very much appreciate it.
