Add a switch to your guitar using the existing holes in your pick guard or body. High quality CTS Push/Pull DPDT switches can be used to add phase switching, coil tapping, series/parallel, etc. to your guitar without having to drill the holes for a mini switch. The shorter body height and side mounted contacts require far less space (1” depth ) making them ideal for thinner bodied guitars with a more shallow body cavity. These Split-shaft pots are compatible with 24- spline, fine knurled knobs and feature a precise audio taper. Hex nuts, flat washer, and lock washer are included with each pot. CTS DPDT pots are available in three types for different applications. Common uses are as follows:

  • 500 kΩ potentiometers (R-VC250KA-DPDT) are commonly used when wiring humbuckers.
  • 250 kΩ potentiometers (R-VC500KA-DPDT) are commonly used when wiring single-coil pickups
  • 500 kΩ long-shaft potentiometers (R-VC500KA-DPDT-LS) are commonly used when wiring carved top solid body guitars

If you have a Les Paul style guitar the length on these will be too short and you will want to go with the .75" option.

Gibsons with flat tops and thinner bodies like SG's usually take pots with the shorter .375" (3/8") bushings.

Yes, these have the same tension that you would come to expect from CTS. There is definitely some resistance when you turn the pot.

This is a 450 series pot but CTS does not have a spec sheet for it on their website. What specs we do have are listed above in the description.

I work as a Guitar tech and I love this pots for split coils projects, I have used a wide variety of brands but I always recomend CTS pots to all my clients.
