In response to the person you posted the first review. When you install this pot you should change the filter cap to something like .033uF. You may even want to go a step further and use a .047uF. Depends on your taste. The "Tone" control is relay an "equalizer" of sorts and forms a passive filter. The pot and capacitor go together and changing just one part of the filter may give you less than desirable results.
If you were looking to brighten up that guitar with extremely dark tones in it, this would be useful. If you think more=better, you'll be disappointed. I bought this mostly on a whim to see what it was like, along with a 500K in case I didn't like it. I initially put this in my project guitar I was working on, wired up with one volume knob and no tone pot. It's so bright in that guitar it makes it sound glassy when turned all the way up. If you turn it down a little it's better, a little more subdued. But it's very two sided. Rolling from 0 to 10 was like "same, same, same, same...BRIGHT", right on 10. There's no working up to it, it's just really bright at 10. I'm thinking of trying it in my LP clone soon to see how it sounds. Should be a little better, in theory. As a side note, I gave this 3 stars because if you play metal and have a good amp, this thing will push your distortion pretty crazy when rolled all the way up. I don't play metal, but if I did I'd keep this in my guitar, just for the extra juice it gives.
I too like the previous reviewer add this to my 7 string. The original volume pot started going out so I replaced it with this model. My tone on the 7 string had alot of lows, and was slightly muddy, but after adding this pot to it, it brighten the sound and added some clarity. Beware though that the pole for this pot is slightly bigger than the original pot so I had to route the whole in the guitar a bit for it to fit.
I was amazed just how much this new pot opened up the sound of my guitar. I have this volume pot working with my new Fender Mod Shop Tele Pickups. It's helped to create a very "Big" sound with almost no hum. I have a lot of dimmer switches in my house, so I'm used to a lot of hum from my guitars. No noise, crushing sound!
When I decided to make an atomic bomb out of my 7 string Ibanez, I bought the Evolution 7 for my bridge pickup and the D Sonic 7 as my neck pickup. Going an extra step further, I wired the whole guitar up with a Dimarzio setup. I used the Dimarzio 1 Meg Custom Taper Split Shaft Pot. Why the 1 Meg pot? To get a little more power and treble response from my axe.
