Are they dodgy?
I have bought two new guitars recently, a PRS CE and a Gibson SG, both with what I understand to be CTS made pots (though the cases claim different...). And five of the six pots have been crap.
The only good one's the push pull on the PRS - which is quite different to the others (not a CTS?).
The faults are consistent aross the five: the shaft is too small for the bushing. This means that, not only do they turn really easily (too easily); they rattle - I can both feel and hear them.
Am I unlucky or are they really just crap?
I have bought CTS over the years as replacements and they've been fine. I've just ordered the latest set (for the gibbo) and I am hoping this is an issue with those CTS badge for the builders.
