Topic: what are pots?

I have heard some say that the guitar was better after I replaced the pots. Is that slang for pickups? Please explain if you would be so kind.

Re: what are pots?

A potentiometer (pot) is a variable resister used for adjusting the volume, bass, tenor, etc.  Cheap ones are scratchy and don't operate as smoothly.

Old age and treachery...

Thank you!

Re: what are pots?

You did not mention whqt type of pick ups you have Humbucker or single coil. With Single coil use a 250k pot and humbuckers use a 500k pot for volume & 250k for tone.


Bootlegger guitars.
