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.
