Split Shaft Potentiometer

Full Size Pot

Value: 500K

CTS long shaft pots are premium potentiometers designed for use in high-end audio electronics, particularly Les Paul guitars and other guitars where the pots are fixed through the body rather than to a scratchplate. Available in both audio taper and linear configurations, these pots offer precise control over volume and tone, with a smooth logarithmic or consistent linear response.

The long shaft design of these pots allows them to be fixed through the body of the guitar, ensuring maximum stability and minimizing the risk of any unwanted movement or noise. This makes them the ideal choice for guitarists who demand the highest level of performance and reliability from their equipment.

Constructed with high-grade materials and featuring a durable design, CTS long shaft pots are built to deliver reliable, long-lasting performance. Whether you are building a custom guitar or upgrading the electronics in an existing instrument, these pots are the perfect choice for achieving the precise, high-quality sound that you are looking for.

Guitar Upgrades

I bought these pots along with new pickups to upgrade some of my guitars. I now have these pots on three guitars, 2 Les Pauls and an Explorer. They are great; the difference they make is amazing. I recommend them to anyone wishing to upgrade.
I also have to say that Northwest Guitars gave me great advice and service, they are now my go-to store and will be using them again in the near future as I have another guitar still to upgrade.
