Potentiometers

Potentiometers are used to control volume and tone. A potentiometer is a three-terminal resistor with a sliding or rotating contact that forms an adjustable voltage divider.Check out our Tech Corder articles on pots, including Potentiometer Types.
Potentiometer - CTS, Audio, Knurled Shaft, ¼" Bushing
CTS pots with a shorter ¼” bushing length that is perfect for pickguard mounted pots. These pots reduce the gap between the pickguard and bottom of the knob for a clean, near flush look. The shaft is a fine (24 tooth) knurl. Nut and lock washer are included.
The Series 450G Guitar Potentiometer is the same robust high-quality guitar potentiometer that has become the industry standard for top guitar manufacturers. Featuring reduced shaft wobble, low noise output, and smooth rotational feel, the Series 450G is supplied with standard tin-plated rear cover and solder lug terminals.

Potentiometer - CTS, Audio, Knurled Shaft, .375" Bushing, DPDT
Add a switch to your guitar using the existing holes in your pick guard or body. High quality CTS Push/Pull DPDT switches can be used to add phase switching, coil tapping, series/parallel, etc. to your guitar without having to drill the holes for a mini switch. The shorter body height and side mounted contacts require far less space (1” depth ) making them ideal for thinner bodied guitars with a more shallow body cavity. These Split-shaft pots are compatible with 24- spline, fine knurled knobs and feature a precise audio taper. Hex nuts, flat washer, and lock washer are included with each pot. CTS DPDT pots are available in three types for different applications.

Potentiometer - Fender®, 250kΩ, Tone Control, for Tele / Strat
250 kΩ ohm. Original TBX tone control for most Strats and Teles. CTS manufactured, includes capacitor and comes in original Fender® packaging. Some instruments have a unique tone circuit that features a TBX Tone Control (Patented). The TBX (which stands for Treble Bass Expander), is a dual concentric stacked tone pot. The pot has a detent in the middle position. From 0 to 5 (at the detent), the TBX functions like a normal tone circuit with filtration through a capacitor. Advancing the knob counterclockwise from the detent position gradually filters off high frequencies, like a standard tone control. Rotate the knob clockwise from the detent position, and you add presence and brightness by allowing the pickups' natural resonance to come through. Fender part number: 099-2052-000
