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

Appropriate for most Gibsons, and many other guitars.

This particular pot is designed for rear-rout applications, where the pot bushing needs to be long enough to pass through the guitar's top while still allowing enough threaded length to use the appropriate nuts and washers, (which are included). Most rear-routed guitars are designed with a 1/4" or 6mm top thickness, and the longer 1/2" threaded bushing on these pots makes them perfect for these rear-rout applications.

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.

Toneshaper’s are the best , great parts , and really fast shipping and George is very knowledgeable and helpful with any questions one might have

Alan Bessler
Not too good..

Proplems they had loose shaft and I could not get the pots tight.

All CTS pots come from the same factory in Taiwan, whether they're being purchased by Tone Shapers, or by Fender, Gibson, PRS, or some other company. CTS doesn't make different grades of pots (good/better/best), they're all the same quality. So we don't know what to make of criticisms of CTS pots like the ones made here, other than to conclude that the commenter may not have much first-hand experience with them.
