Big Improvement over cheap pots.
Christiansen, 19.11.2020
I got a second hand Washburn with Seymour Duncan pups on it and I wasn't impressed how was the sound out of it. Not like I'm a professionist (more likely an sunday player) but the price was really low and guitar was in pristine condition so I bought it. The wiring was really bad and the pots were something no name and really tiny. So, I bought this pots, remade the wiring with SD wiring specs and damn, thru my computer with GR5 (dont have an amp yet) it's a big difference in how it sounds. It's a different quitar to be honest and high sounds are more clearer, changing the tone is actually making a difference (I got a Orange drop 22nf on it) and overall the quitar is turning out to be a 100% best deal. I don't know if the new wiring made this big change in sound, but I guess this new pots and cap made a huge difference. On the downside, I had to make the holes in the guitar and knobs a bit bigger for them to fit, but I knew that before ordering, couldn't find pots to fit exactly.

Worthwhile upgrade for any guitar
Martin John 17, 17.11.2019
If you find your guitar is lacking ooomph then it could be your electronics. Many guitars come with sub-standard pots so even if the pickups are OK, you wont be able to hear it.

These are pretty much the standard in any high-end guitar, the first I do when getting a new cheap guitar is change the pots. Much cheaper than buying new pickups, and often has the same effect.
