Six String Supplies — CTS 500k Long Shaft Pot

CTS 500k Long Shaft Pot


CTS – The name says it all. CTS are the name in guitar circuit control. These pots include a flat washer, locking washer, and two hex nuts for easy height adjustment on a pickguard or through an arched top guitar body.

Top of the range CTS 500k split shaft pot. This pot is ideal for volume and tone controls with humbucker pickups. The split shaft is ideal for push-fit knobs.

CTS pots are unlike many other standard pots that use industry standard 20% tolerances where, in most cases, are way under the specifications you need to ensure good tone from your pickups. When it comes to upgrading or replacing your pots, only CTS will do! They have long been the premier choice of guitarists and guitar techs.

Unlike others, our long shaft pots come with 2 hexagonal nuts, 1 which is ideal for setting the height.
