What pots would you buy to replace Hamer pots?

Question

Looking at a Hamer that someone replaced all the electronics and put in EMG's. If I was to buy it I'd like to restore it as good as I can.

What pots would be closest (and best) compared to the OEM Hamer pots? I guess NOS Hamer pots are impossible to find, right?

I'd bet a pound to a penny that CTS vintage are close! That said, I prefer the sweep on Bourns audio taper pots myself nowadays after being a CTS Vintage (G450) user for many years...

For that Hamer / Gibson 500k CTS replacement, I reach for these and keep them well in  stock.

Good taper, quick spin, top notch build.

Those ^^ are more or less CTS 'G450 Vintage' pots...
