    1. Actually surprised! 5 Star Review

      Posted by on Dec 18, 2017

      So I wish I knew about the metric cts pots a long time ago. I have Korean made ltd viper 400 that came with emgs. I wanted to convert to passive pickups. These fit in that guitar without any drilling. In the past I always had to drill the holes to get the pot in. These will work for an overseas made guitar.

      Quality...nothing more need be said.

    3. Not 500k 2 Star Review

      Posted by on Sep 11, 2016

      I measured the value of the pot and give me 465k. The neck pickup sounds so muddy.

    4. Industry Standard 5 Star Review

      These are supposed to be the "best" and I'm using them to replace the crap the Chinese put in the imports. Did the job. Now, about those pickups .. . ..

    5. These pots are awesome! 5 Star Review

      Posted by on Feb 22, 2016

      I purchased three of these pots for my import Hamer. I have three sets of knobs that fit import pots (coarse splines). With these pots I didn't have to get new knobs or ream out the holes for the pot shafts either. They feel very smooth and sound great!

    6. Best Pots now in Metric Size! 5 Star Review

      Posted by on Jan 28, 2016

      CTS Potentiometers are very high quality & among the best you can get. The only issue prior was that CTS were for Standard USA guitars & the shaft threads were too wide for Import guitar bodies & knobs.
      Now with the Metric size I can install CTS Pots on all my fine Japanese / import guitars with no modification to the body, and still use the original knobs. I always change the Pots when I change pickups so these are much needed. Great!

    7. Good pots! 5 Star Review

      Posted by on Sep 14, 2015

      Works as expected and is an excellent replacement for, say, your 26 year old Ibanez's antiquated and scratchy ones.
