Good potentiometers
LargePotato4455 12.09.2021
Good tone potentiometers, wanted to replace them because my guitar had mini-pots that worked not so good, even if I roll them to 0, the sound didn't change so much, probably they were broken

The main problem was that the holes in the guitar body where potentiometers are inserted were too small, I had to expand them a little with a file.
After this I soldered them, installed, and I noticed that they changed the sound, it became brighter, I can't say for sure, that's a merit of these pots, or that's because previous worked very badly

Now I can slightly roll them and will notice that the sound changed a bit, which means that you can change the tone as you want, this didn't happen with previous pots.

Don't have any complaints, I'm satisfied and can recommend them.

P.S. If someone wonders, for the volume I bought the ''Göldo Pot 500K Lin'', so I'm happy with them both


Can't beat it
Edgar Blackdagger 12.02.2018
I've been using this pot series for years and since the first set I bought, these are the only ones I've been buying and using.

They feel better than Fender pots, they are a lot cheaper and they are Japanese made, well, you can;t beat that.


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!


Goldo EL500 Pot - nice spare electronic parts
Anonymous 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
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)


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