I liked the sets of VIP pots I installed. Felt “vintage correct” to me when doing the A/B with the vintage gear.

FWIW
I was shopping for 500k pots (not for an LP) and looked in on Bare Knuckles 550k pots - I have them in another guitar. They are offering them in 10, 20 and 30% tapers. They're CTS pots that they get 'custom made' to a tighter tolerance than standard and with 'vintage' tapers. Available in long or short shaft and also in 280k... I think, they even do them in push/pull variant.

VIP are the only modern day substitute to the real Centralab pots of the day.
