Bourns® Model PDB183-GTR21 Guitar Potentiometer with Push-Pull Switch. Used for Split-Coil Pickup Switching Electric guitar manufacturing is a multi-billion dollar industry with major manufacturers established worldwide. From the introduction of the first mass-produced electric guitar in 1950, guitarists have been mesmerized with advances in technology and the wide array of after- market parts commercially available for guitar upgrades. Specialty products such as Bourns® Model PDB183-GTR21 Guitar Potentiometer with Push-Pull Switch allow the guitarist multiple functions utilizing a single control such as split-coil switching for humbucking (double-pole) pickups or stacked single-coil pickups, active electronics activation, and pickup phase switching.
