    Just finished putting a new Seymour Duncan YJM speedpot in my V. I've got one of these in my both of my other guitars and have been spoiled by them so now any standard volume pot feels like I am turning a rusty bolt. Anyway, since I was in there soldering, I figured I'd tidy things up and re-do some questionable solder joints and ended up re-wiring the whole thing.

    Oh, and a gratuitous shot of my V's

    Less friction to turn it is all. Its the same as the EVH volume pot but with a split shaft instead (EVH has a solid shaft)

    I do install this onto my all Strats, I also got one spare pickguard with this one
    It floats smoother like a butter:

    Sounds useful. Sometimes I feel like some kind of cave dweller who chips guitars out of flint and beats boulders together while all of you are perfecting your axes.

    I use them for tone pots, too, as I turn those a lot as well.

    They are kinda pricey ($15) for what they are but its worth it.

    Thanks I’ll consider them than. I’ll see how I’ll like the one they came with my pickguard

    Cool. Those V's and that amp are awesome.
    Who is this YJM guy? Does he play the heavy mettle stuff?
