The first thing is that the "pot" I received DID NOT have that long brass housing. And I'm following the link from the conformation E-mail. Instead I received a potentiometer that had a "steel?" housing that only measured around 1/4 of an inch with the washer and nut OFF! I however did get one with a brass shaft and the capacitor it came with was a matching resistance to an ugly green one that came in my old Telecaster so I guess that if I wanted a red cap instead I can switch them. there are a few very big plus-es for this "pot". The action was very tight, this is hard to describe; it takes more to turn the thing but it was a very VERY smooth. And to boot this doesn't have an Audio taper. It DOES conform to more of a linear taper. so it will be better to use as a volume pot. THIS IS A GREAT PRODUCT, just be careful. This pot may not be long enough to fit on some guitars.
I ordered 3 of these recently to install in my 2008 Squier Standard Strat which I have been in the process of re-modding now for the last few weeks. These wouldn't fit in the holes of the pickguard of the Squier, so I had to take a knife and route out a little space for these which only took a few minutes. After that, installation was a breeze ,and to top it off, these also come with 0220 Capacitors as well, which is a welcomed bonus . After I installed them, the difference in the sound of my Squier was very noticeable and was quite a improvement with these in it. I highly reccommend these if you have a Squier Standard Start or Tele and want to improve the sound of it.
Works well, can't hear scratching. Action is ok. The shaft is a bit too high though, leaves some gap with the knobs on top.
Took out my old potentiometer and installed this one. I had to modify the hole a little to get it to fit, but that's more because the model guitar I have was made in Japan and the parts for it are discontinued. I basically had to modify the guitar just a little to get everything to fit. I looked up wiring diagrams for my guitar and couldn't find one with my configuration,but having instructions along with the product would help, thankfully the instructions that came with the pickup I bought were sufficient enough. I haven't installed the capacitor in it yet, the original model didn't have one, but I understand this makes the sound more crisp, so after I get done having fun for a little while longer I'll throw that one in. Until then, I'll be enjoying this product just the way it is.
I got this potentiometer and the 5 way selector switch for my american Strat, and it works perfectly. Sounds like the original.
