Where to Get Wiring Supplies? (Also straplocks and screws!)

    I bought some CTS pots, wire, solder, Orange Drop caps, and copper tape from an interweb store (dunno if it's OK to post, so I'll leave it out). Prices are good, but I'm wondering if anyone, especially the guys who commission builds, go to get these kind of supplies?

    I'm looking to rewire most of my basses, and most have upgraded pickups tacked to crappy pots. There isn't really a good source in town here.

    I'd also like to get some screws... chrome and black... for pickups, pickguards, jacks plates, that sort of thing. Finally, is there any good source for JUST the bass side Dunlop Dual-Design Strap locks?

    Thanks a bunch, TB!

    I'd say StewMac would have everything you need.

    You can probably find what you're looking for from allparts.com.

    Thanks guys, lot of good suggestions I didn't know about, and some that just didn't even click to me.
