Made in Japan - that's enough to say!
Arpie, 04.12.2014
I like everything which has a stamp "Made in Japan". So that's why I was brave with this product, I purchased it without any hesitation. Although there were a few negative review about it. Honestly I have no idea why someone gave a negative feedback for this product. It was easy to solder, very massive and robust. I didn't have to afraid that I will break a solder lug or anything. Rotates super smoothly, not too loose not too tight just exactly what I like.
I purchased it for my Charvette 200, which has an HSS pickup configuration. (I don't use any tone control knob just a single volume is enough for me)
After installation I gave a quick test, worked perfectly fine, there was no noise or scratching sound. It is a really good value for money item, you won't be able to find better product for this money!

Just great !
Bo E., 26.01.2017
I used many brand of pots in the past and while the taper is maybe not THE best with this pot it is stile very good. Where this one just excels though is the fact that solders extremely easy. If you have had to solder things to the back of pots you may know that this not always such an easy tast. Many pots have a coating on them and you'll have to scratch it off with a knife or have to heat the surface way too long... But not with these guys! Because they have a Tin plated housing, it is very easy and quick sol solder wire to it. I will be buying these ones again !

Goldo EL500 Pot - nice spare electronic parts
21.01.2017
I use Goldo pots either to replace low quality pots onsome of my guitars, or to use on guitars built from scratch by my luthier.
Appreciations apply to both 500 and 250 k
PROS:
Good quality for the money
Fairly well built
Last fairly well in use
Good result when used correctly in conjunction with pick-ups (ie they do not induce noise or unwanted changes in sound)

CONS
None

I would recommend Goldo as a fair choice of good electronics on guitars. One of the best choices in their range of price

400kOhm instead of 500
KostasBk, 08.04.2020
This pot measures 400kOhm instead of 500kOhm. It may be that these come with a +/- 20% tolerance but still, it's a very marginal pass. I also think the +/-20% tolerance should be mentioned in the product page.
