SSS Premium® CTS Pots Featuring SSS Premium® CTS pots, this wiring kits is the ultimate upgrade to any model, be it a DIY partscaster or Custom Shop. SSS Premium® CTS pots have a custom audio taper as opposed to the modern 10% audio taper, giving you a smoother and more rounded control sweep.
Will this fit my guitar? The pot shaft diameter is 9.52mm so you may be required to drill the tone and volume holes to M10 diameter. The toggle switch requires a M12 diameter hole. You may need to replace your control knobs - the CTS pots fit imperial/US control knobs whereas many eastern imported guitars come with metric pots and knobs.
