Try scuffing the pot with dome sandpaper, and using some solder flux. Nice lead dress!
Looks awesome man!
I'll give that a shot next time, thanks for the tip
Good job. where did you end up getting your parts?
Sort of a mix of places. The 5 way and the pots I got from Callaham because I was already buying a block and saddles, but the pots they sent were too long and I didn't want to use a bunch of extra washers so I got some 1/4" bushing ones off amazon that work well. The pickguard, shielding, and cloth cable I picked up off Reverb.
wow so clean, great job.
Are the CTS pots you bought split shaft 450S 250k?
Great advice. It'll help the solder not only stick but will help ensure you don't wind up with a "cold" joint. When soldering on the back of a pot I'll generally scrape the oxide layer with the tip of my wirecutters in a small area I intended to solder on rather than bust out the sandpaper though. I don't want to risk any of the dust getting in the pot.
Looks good, much better than my first attempt.
