Potentiometers are used to control volume and tone. A potentiometer is a three-terminal resistor with a sliding or rotating contact that forms an adjustable voltage divider.Check out our Tech Corder articles on pots, including Potentiometer Types.
Original Fender® snap-in, control potentiometer, 1 meg, J taper.
Starting at $3.50
250K ohm. for most Stratocasters and Telecasters. Original guitar hardware. CTS manufactured, includes capacitor. Comes in Fender ® packaging. Some Fender guitars have a unique tone circuit that features a "Delta Tone' Control. The "Delta Tone' system consists of a high output bridge pickup and special 'no-load' tone control for the middle and bridge pickups. This new pot has a detent at the 10 position which bypasses completely any filtration through capacitors.
50K Linear, spider. Center detent. See R-VPV-50KL-R for a version without detent. Mounting hardware not included.

47K Linear, for PA (Body diameter = 0.41")
Peavey Audio Potentiometer, Spider-Style PC Mount Terminals. Knurled, split shaft.
Starting at $3.95
250K ohm, solid shaft, no load. Some Fender guitars have a unique tone circuit that features a "Delta Tone" Control. The "Delta Tone" system consists of a high output bridge pickup and special 'no-load' tone control for the middle and bridge pickups. This new pot has a detent at the 10 position which bypasses completely any filtration through capacitors. Unlike the TBX, which has a detent at the 5 position and gradually reduces the amount of filtration through the capacitor, the Delta-Tone's 'no-load' feature eliminates filtration completely at the detent and the result is more of the direct presence of the pickup.
500k ohm, audio taper. Split Shaft
250K ohm. Original TBX tone control for most Strats and Teles. CTS manufactured, includes capacitor and comes in original Fender® packaging. Some instruments have a unique tone circuit that features a TBX Tone Control (Patented). The TBX (which stands for Treble Bass Expander), is a dual concentric stacked tone pot. The pot has a detent in the middle position. From 0 to 5 (at the detent), the TBX functions like a normal tone circuit with filtration through a capacitor.
