About

I’m a big fan of CTS pots, I've tried and tested a variety and our friends at Six String Suppliers have done a great job spec'ing their SSSP 'Six String Supplies Premium' series. So glad I got informed of these, SSS is another Midlands based company so more than happy to support them and stock/use their great spec custom CTS pots. For reference these are also my go-to spec for my pre-wired kits and in house repair work too. Personally use these pots regularly with great results and feedback from customers.

This premium, '450' series, custom spec CTS pot features a +/-8% tolerance which is incredibly important as the rating is accurate to the requirements. Their construction is also a longer life-span brass shaft and bushing with a graphite wiper.  Each pot comes complete with a nut, washer and star tooth washer. They are are based on the CTS 'B' audio 15% taper.


This specific pot is a 250k, short, solid shaft design. You'll perhaps most commonly find and use these on Telecasters, or with other single coil equipped guitars. The solid shaft basically means these will suit control knobs that secure in place via a grub screw (rather than push fit splines) and more specifically suit control knobs with a 1/4" / 6.35mm diameter. The mounting thread length is fairly shallow on this specific pot, this means they do better suit mounting to control plates or pickguards. The mounting thread length is 1/4" / 6.35mm, so please bare this in mind when ordering. As they may not neccesarily comfortably fit through a body top for example, all depends on the tops thickness. See measurements below for more information
