50's Tolerance 500K CTS Guitar Pots

These harnesses are the perfect complement to ThroBak P.A.F. reproduction pickups and the player wanting the full treble response from their guitar. Speced to a +/- 9% tolerance with a target just above 500K assures that all pots are within the 515k to 565K window of vintage pots used in vintage 50's and 60's era Gibson electric guitars guitars. The 500k Plus specification assures the added treble response of a vintage 50's Les Paul wiring harness. Factory supplied pots installed in modern era Les Paul guitars have a tolerance of +/- 20% and are speced at 300k or 500K depending upon year.
