Doesn't fit many knobs at all

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.

EVH Pot / Extremely Poor Quality

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...Read complete review

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:

          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.

                  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.

                    I installed these pots on a custom "Strat" that is one of my favorite guitars and the results were magical! I used the 500K pots and the silky smooth response has changed the way I use this guitar! I highly recommend these as a small investment that will improve your tone dramatically.

                      Read my first comments.....if you need a new pot,and a short shaft will work for you,snag this one quickly!
                      First off...anything Ed puts his name on,I know it's gonna stand the test of time.I needed a new pot,and wanted this model for sure.I was a little bummed when I got it,as it was a short shaft,NOT a long.I don't see a option for that,so BE AWARE!!I was lucky to JUST have enough threads to mount it anyway.With that being said,the volume comes on very quick as you turn it.The feel is excellent,and volume swells,ala'"Cathedral"...are a breeze!Now when you open up your control cavity cover and see the EVH logo,you'll know you made the right choice
                      A1....it's stamped EVH!
                      A bit more than others,but worth it.....

                      These pots are as good as advertised. I had many different pots on a multimeter and these were right on the money!That is not common at all! Really solid and smooth turning. No extra noise anywhere in the travel or when on or off. They make volume swells more expressive. Made my guitar feel real high class.
