Due to supply chain issues at CTS, we are out-of-stock on the short-shaft 500K SuperPot Volumes. Until further notice, for Volume controls in the short-shaft 500K kits, we will use a CTS audio taper pot based off a 50’s CentraLab pot, which has a better taper than current audio taper pots.
RS Guitarworks offers the pre-wired Vintage Les Paul Jr.® kit. Just attach your pickup and tailpiece ground, and you're ready to go! Loaded with the great RS 500K SuperPot™, along with a CTS 250K Tone pot and a Vintage RS GuitarCap Paper In Oil .022. Big, fat tones for your Les Paul Jr.®!
Available in left-handed orientation with correct-turning pots. Not just wired backwards, but the correcttaper as well!! NOEXTRACHARGE!!
Please Note: All guitars manufactured in Korea, Japan, China, Indonesia and Mexico use metric pots (6mm), and have metric sized holes drilled for the pots. All pots sold by RS Guitarworks use standard pots and hole diameters (3/8"). Therefore, holes in the guitar, plates and/or pickguards will need to be enlarged to 3/8" to fit properly. Also, metric knobs will not fit the RS pot shafts; most popular knobs are available on the store in new and aged versions. Please call us for details or questions about installation.
Each kit comes with: (1) 500K RS Short-Shaft SuperPot™ - We designed these pots in conjunction with CTS. Used for the volume control in the kit, this pot has a custom taper that gives you a noticeable difference between each number on your volume control. You can finally roll your volume down to 2 or 1 and not loose any clarity!! Mil-spec construction and a smoother resistor path make this the best pot to ever be used in the guitar. (1) 250 CTS Short-Shaft Audio taper pot. (1) Vintage RS GuitarCap Paper In Oil .022µF Capacitor. Manufactured to RS specs, these hand-made 100v caps have a rich vintage tone, while still retaining open top-end clarity. Hand-wound on 50's-era machines, the new RS Vintage GuitarCaps use vintage-correct Kraft paper, solid military-spec construction and tinned 20AWG leads for easy soldering. They really hold their own against the vintage caps; their tone is similar to the famous caps from the 50's.
(1) Length vintage-braided wire - used for signal, shielding and grounding circuit.
