Thanks Steve,

I've fixed the Fender link and the one at Rane.

Can't find any site for bassguitarpartsdirect so I'm guessing it's gone - if anyone knows different then let me know. :)

I often see requests for "what cable or how to wire" so I though I would put this here.

[/quote]I have used ESR many times and they are good. There are two things to look out for;

All prices exclude VAT and carriage.

They can substitute parts between purchases. I bought some quality Cliff Jack sockets from them and the next time the same part numbers were Amphenol. Unfortunately those were not if the same quality (although still good value).

This company [url="http://www.bassguitarpartsdirect.co.uk/"]http://www.bassguita...tsdirect.co.uk/[/url] appear to stock only Bass products and have a large selection of Machineheads and Bridges.

They seem to have gone out of business.

I've always had good service and parts from
http://www.northwestguitars.co.uk/

Some of their budget parts, such as their cheap hi-mass bridges are pretty good too.
