Bare Knuckle Custom 550K Standard Shaft Potentiometer
Whatever pickups you own, the signal goes through the volume pots before getting to your amp. Having high grade, close tolerance pots makes a lot of sense and Bare Knuckle Pickups, who make amazing pickups, are now offereing the best pots for guitar players.
Standard guitar pots, either strock or replacement, are made with a large variance (up to 25%) in tolerance. This means your average 500K pot may only actually be around 400K. This affects the high frequencies and can contribute to muddiness when rolling back the volume. In addition, run-of-the-mill pots are less than "smooth" and linear.
These custom, high grade, 550K pots, made with a 10% tolerance for Bare Knuckle by CTS, solve all these problems and are the way to go, especially if you've already invested in upgraded pickups.
