Bought a couple of these a while back... Had trouble with both POTS.. Would not cut all the way off.. Case very loose and cuts in and out.. Made pickups sound badly.. Had a fair amound of trouble pinpointing problem.. Couldn't believe 2 new POTS were bad at same time..Caused me a lot of trouble rewiring new ones in.. Put 2 new Fender 500k pots in and got excellent results.. Avoid the EVH pots like the plague.. They really ticked me off.. Expensive and very very poor quality all around..

    Comments about EVH Custom Low Friction 500K Potentiometer:

    This Pot is fantastic! Excellent sweep, no crackles or pops, is as advertised. If you're coming from CTS, alpha, or no name pots, there is a learning curve, but not in a bad way. It is WAY more sensitive than other pots. I bought the Ernie Ball Black Telecaster knobs, and they fit. This pot has a quarter inch solid shaft, so Tele knobs work great.

    Highly Reccomend.

          Effortless raising and lowering of volume with this pot. Using just a quick flick of the pinky. The post is larger than your average pot. I used a drill bit to enlarge the hole on a plastic knob so it would fit. Worth the effort. I will be installing these on my other guitars in the future.

                  Comments about EVH Custom Low Friction 500K Potentiometer:

                  Great replacement pot. My old volume control froze in my Fender HM Strat (1988), so I decided to upgrade to the EVH. Wiring and soldering it in was a bit tricky, so you should have a pro do the install, if you are not experienced. Soldering down in the back-routed cavity and getting wires into place was difficult. But after a little adjusting of the solder points, I got it working better than ever again. Volume swells are faster than ever.

                      Heavy duty and well made these are clearly better than the run-of-the-mill pots. So smooth and exact that I'm using my volume control more than ever! I have so much more control and responsiveness that I'm going to put them in all my guitars.

                      Comments about EVH Custom Low Friction 500K Potentiometer:

                      This pot does what it says. Very easy to use and very smooth. The drawback is that the pot shaft is too thick for most knobs and this wasn't listed in the description. It's a straight pole type shaft and I had to drill out a wider hole on my knob to make it fit. This is not a split shaft like the 250k so buyer beware.

                      I didn't buy this for the EVH name and I could care less if Kmart sold these. I bought it for the easy of spinning the knob. They should have mentioned the shaft description but didn't. If you read online, you'll see many complaints about this. I will however buy more knowing now that I will have to modify the knob hole.

                          I bought a couple of these, & some 250k for my Yngwie and a cutom Warmoth Strat built by Corky Newman. The shaft is solid- not slotted, so Gibson & Fender knobs don't just push-on. I bought some correct-size knobs w/ screws from Ace Hardware for the 2 Strats- black- but almost the exact shape. Guitar Repair of Tampa Bay did the installation of all the pots- excellent luthiers by the way! They reamed out the SG knob for a perfect fit! I used the the new fitted knobs for the 2 Strats tho. EXCELLENT pots- get 'em, just look at Ace, to start with, for knobs.
