We sell these pots individually, the image shows two so that you can see more detail.

Designed specifically for Telecasters, fits many other guitars.

The best guitar pots we're aware of are made by CTS - this is the brand that pretty much every American guitar company has used since the 1940s. We order most of our pots directly from CTS and have them made to our specs.

Be advised: These pots have 1/4" diameter shafts (6.35mm), and they are designed for knobs that are held on with a setscrew. Most imported guitars that have setscrew knobs come with metric pots with 6mm shafts - and accordingly, they come with knobs with 6mm holes - and these knobs will not fit on our pots unless the hole in the knob is enlarged to 1/4".

While this might seem like no big deal, in practice it's not something the average consumer will find trivial. A drill bit that grabs a metal knob and spins it in the hand risks cutting the hand, and especially if it has a setscrew sticking out on one side. Unless you have a drill press and a way to hold the knob from spinning without marring it, you might find it advisable to buy new knobs. All of the Fender and Callaham setscrew knobs we sell will work, they all have 1/4" bores and are designed for CTS pots with solid shafts.

Decptive Picture

Based on the primary picture I thought the sale included 2 pots. It is my fault for not reading all details, but I believe the leading picture is deceptive and may be intended to be. I was disappointed when I found only one. I just had to order another, but I got it somewhere else.

Nice upgrade

Upgraded my telecaster which had cheap pots from a Tele Squire. Nice smooth operation. The tone pot helped tame the harshness of the bridge pickup. This purchase from Tone Shapers was easy and the shipping was quick. Will buy from again.
