Emerson Pro Pots are custom made by CTS to exacting specifications. What makes these pots different than other CTS variants on the market? ALL of them are hand metered to ensure that they meter within +/- 8% tolerance of the 250K or 500K resistance. Emerson Pro Pots are low torque and feature a proprietary custom audio taper that was designed to maximize response (you can turn down all the way to 2 and its like you just turned down your amp).
Each Emerson Pro CTS pot includes a flat washer, lock washer, and two hex mounting nuts for custom height adjustment on a pickguard, control plate, or directly on to the guitars top from inside the control cavity.

**Installation Tips for Knobs on Split Shaft Pots: Our Emerson Pro split shaft pots are made to fit USA Spec 24 spline push-on knobs. Import Guitars will need new USA Spec Knobs. We recommend that you slightly crimp together the top of the potentiometers shaft ever so slightly so that when you go to push on the knob you don't damage the pot shaft by exerting too much downward pressure.
