500K Ohm Potentiometer 1/4" Shaft
500K Ohm Potentiometer 1/4" Shaft is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for guitarIf you're looking at this pot to replace one of the volume pots in your guitar, look elsewhere. The shaft length of this pot is too short to use in a guitar. There is not enough thread to install the nut on the outside of the guitar body. I did not get to use the pot so I could not fairly evaluate it's performance. Guitar players - spring for CTS pots. They're only 5 or 6 bucks if you look hard enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality potentiometer at a budget priceI have used this potentiometer on a DIY tube guitar amp with great results. The rotation of the shaft is silky smooth and the potentiometer is noise free.

500K Ohm Potentiometer 1/4" Shaft

My pot I need to replace is labeled 400 ohm-100 ohm stop. What would be a replacement for this. My concern is, it has a low to high setting.

Asked by: ModEmotions
Well, this pot is 1,000 times more resistive than the one you need, it seems. The one below should be in the ballpark of what you are talking about. You sould use an ohm-meter to figure out more of the characteristics of what you have. You should also look at the circuit schematic, if available, and make sure your replacement part makes sense.
