WORLDS FINEST POTS FOR STRATOCASTER GUITARS

|SEYMOUR DUNCAN POTS FOR FENDER STYLE GUITARS
Yngwie asked Seymour about better, easier to turn pots. This is what Seymour came up with.
WHAT IS SO SPECIAL ABOUT THESE?
They are extremely easy to turn. Seymour Duncan had Bourns make these with very little lube on the shaft. With these in your guitar you can use your pinky to effortlessly adjust volume.
If you're accustomed to typical quality pots like CTS you'll need to get used to these YJM pots because these turn with no effort. They don't change position on their own but they have very little resistance or drag when you turn them.
After you get accustomed to these any normal pot feels sticky and sluggish by comparison.
These can be used at all locations in a Fender Stratocaster for volume and tone functions. I just got more in so I can rework my 2007 American Standard Stratocaster. The volume pot in this Strat is noisy and the treble tone control pot has become very difficult to turn. I don't know what Fender put in there that crapped out so quickly but I know what I'm putting in there to replace the stock components.
I just put a pair of these in my 1960 Fender Duo Sonic guitar, the 250K model worked great. I've used them in half a dozen other guitars, the feel is addictive.
I order them from Amazon. They are available in
250 K for single coil pickups and 500K for humbucking pickups.
Worth the money, improves the performance of any electric guitar they fit in.
Good music to all!
