    Which pots and switch do I need?

    I'd like to convert my Albert Lee HH to a 3 way switch and push pull pots for coil taps like the special edition version that came out a while back. Which pots and switch should I buy?

    All these parts are fairly standard and not Music Man specific. The pots are 500k.

    Stew Mac sells the parts your looking for. I've never bought from them before, but they seem to have a pretty good selection.

    Components + Parts | stewmac.com

    AllParts seems to have a good selection as well and again never bought from them either.

    Hope it helps, Glenn |B)

    I've used these guys: Guitar Electronics Parts & Wiring Diagrams | GuitarElectronics.com
    And really like these guys: Amplified Parts

    However, I almost always get the best deals on ebay.... but you need to know what you're looking for.
    If you're just keeping the stock humbuckers and simplifying the switching to a 3-way (which seems like a waste of time to me, but hey...), then a couple of 500k pots and a quality 3-way Tele switch. Watch out that the shafts on the pots will work with the knobs you plan to use... there are a few different choices.
    Enjoy Your Balls!!!
