A couple of months ago I busted my Squier VM Jaguar Bass' jazz bass knob. I hit it on the corner of the bed and the potentiometer got all bent and needs to be replaced. That is what the repair guy said, but sadly, he didn't have the right potentiometer I need and doesn't usually buy them, cause it turns out not many people use them at least where I live (Bulgaria). So, I need to replace it. If you could be kind enough to link me directly to a product that will suit me, preferably in the online store thomann, since it will be most convenient for me to get it from there. Or at least some info on specifications of the thing I need and where to look for one. Thank you!

Which VM Jaguar do you have?
Damn it! Disable can't use disable to disable Disable's disable because disable's disable has already been disabled by Disable's disable!

Oh yeah, sorry about that, it's the 2012 P/J model http://www.backalleymusic.co.uk/contents/media/vintage%20mod%20jag%20bass.jpg WITHOUT the active bass boost.

That's the pot you'll need for your bass.

You need a 250k pot, as already recommended. I like the Bourns brand pots. They are very good, and they don't cost much more than the run-of-the-mill stuff (and that doesn't cost much, either).

Quick and easy fix; especially if you screw it in and resolder the wires yourself.

I am not very good with electronics, that's why I started this thread, but as I understand from reading around on forums and so on, other than the already recommended pot, which is a 250k top and 250k bottom, there are other possibilities, such as 250/500 or 500/500 (top, bottom, respectively). What is the difference between these parts and will some of them not be compatible with my bass? I am talking for example about these ones

So, which is best out of these two and the already recommended one? (mind you, all parts in my bass are original, I have not replaced anything, I read somewhere, that different pickups act differently with different pots)

A 500K Tone Pot will get you more highs than will a 250K pot. I don't know that it makes much difference with respect to volume pots. If I am not mistaken, a 250K/500K concentric pot means your volume pot will be 250K and your tone pot will be 500K.
