  • And even more cool new pots. (Bourns Sean Silas pots.)

    I don't really know who Sean Silas is, but apparently, he collaborated on some cool pots. I bought these quite some time ago for no specific project. I just liked the write-up. My latest customer wanted good Bourns pots to go with the MojoTones he's putting in a black (EPI) LP Custom. So I put them in. These are sweet! Super velvety smooth action, and one of the best tapers I've ever used. Probably, the best taper I've ever used. Volume drops smoothly, and you can still slightly hear the pup just before you hit "zero."

    They go for $10 - $11 each, depending on if you need knurled or solid shafts. Check 'em out. Sweet pots.

    And yeah, they only appear to be available in 500k.

    I once found a guitar amp in the garbage, a Peavey Studio 110. It caught fire at the first gig I played it at.. But it was at the end of it, thank god.

      US all the way. Good ole' 3/8".

      And I did just put them in an LP with no problem. Other than had to ream out the bushing hole just a smidgen. But I've got the reamer, so I kinda take it for granted.

              That sure looks like the same thing. I'm gonna be bummed if I paid 75% too much.

                    You paid a reasonable price for quality pots, but the stock at Arrow is definitely a value buy here.

                    The solid shaft version is over $4/ea. on the same site. Also, if you sign up for their free "perks" account, you can get free shipping on orders over $50.

                        Yup. I've been signed up. I just don't always "search" as diligently as I should.
