CTS Split Shaft No-Load Tone Pot - 250K or 500K

Shipping Info

CTS No-load Tone pot

Works like a standard tone pot from 1-9, but turning to 10 (full clockwise) takes the pot out of the circuit entirely.  This eliminates the path to ground that exists with standard pots in the full setting. The result is increased power and brightness at the "full on" setting. Can be used for TONE ONLY, 1/4" shaft, complete with mounting nut & washer

  • Total pot depth - 30mm
  • Length of threaded shaft - 9mm
  • Diameter of threaded shaft - 9.5mm
  • Diameter of split shaft - 6mm
  • Base of pot diameter - 23.5mm

Please note, that unlike the Fender no load tone pot, the CTS pot does not have the "click" when turned all the way to "10". This is a feature added by Fender to their pots, and is not avialable on the CTS models. The pot wors in exaclt the same way apart from this feature.

    Whatever I need, as somebody who fixes, builds and plays guitars, Northwest guitars seem to have it. I highly recommend them!

    No load pot

    Got the 250k ones, one for tone and one for a blend. They do the trick and you can hear them working. They were larger than the pots they replaced so I had to drill out the strat pickguard a bit, and also saw off the end of the shaft. The knobs don't quite fit on all the way due to the size of the nut but it's not really noticeable. In use they aren't quite as smooth as the ones they replace either
