Reporting question for Potentiometer - Fender®, 250kΩ, Knurled Shaft, No Load

Product:
Potentiometer - Fender®, 250kΩ, Knurled Shaft, No Load

Question:
What is the difference between a no load and regular potentiometer?

Answer:
With a no-load tone pot when the pot is turned up to 10 it clicks in to place and the pot and cap are removed from the circuit thereby running the pickup hot/full blast. With a standard potentiometer, even at 10 the pot and cap are in the circuit which adds some amount of tonal change to the raw pickup sound.
