  • Fender or CTS?

    im putting a humbucker in my telecaster. should i get:

    the fender volume pot:

    or the CTS volume pot:

    the fender is a few bucks more, but i here about the CTS stuff more often.
    the real question: does it really matter?
    any opinions would be appreciated
    thanks

    Doesn't really matter. What does matter is if it's marked A for Audio pot or B for linear. Go for the one marked A.

      Fender uses CTS pots.

        so is it a good chance that its just a CTS pot with fender packaging?

          Exactly. You can't go wrong with CTS. Just be sure it's the right type of pot for the application you need ... Audio, Linear, 250k, 500k, etc.
