Alpha Audio Taper potentiometer. These pots have a metric thread and are often found in many Japanese, and non-US made guitars. Being a metric thread, the shaft is a little narrower than the CTS pots, so they fit smaller drilled control plates, and mounting holes. 

  • Metric thread: M8 x .75
  • 7.8mm diameter brass threaded collar (import size, smaller than USA spec versions).
  • 18 spline aluminium split shaft (coarse).
  • Includes 1x nut and 1x dress washer.


  • The brass threaded collar is 9.5mm long.
  • Total length of the shaft to the top of the spline is 18mm.
  • Split shaft diameter : 6mm.
  • Pot casing diameter : 24mm.

Which Ohm value should you choose?

500k pots are the standard volume and tone controls for humbuckers, and 250k's are usually used for single-coil pickups. A 250k gives a slightly warmer tone than a 500K by sending more of the high-frequencies in the circuit to ground.
