This is a 4-pack of our CT-450S3507 pots.

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.

Best taper ever!!

I had been comparing pots in a Les Paul for 30 years total. Everyone always talked of CentraLab pots and their taper. I will make a bold statement here and now….I think most people do not consider 50s wiring versus Modern wiring. These CTS pots sold through Toneshaper, are such high quality and the taper when wired 50s style has that sound and taper that is hard to tell the difference. You get more tonal options and volume down to the last number using the 50s wiring schematic…. And the pots work so much better together. These are as good as it gets…. Trust me

The only ones for me

This size is the best for rear routed guitars , quality is ver good y also price is good
