I have an LTD EC1000. I sold the EMGs to get some passives. Im putting a 59 in the neck and a Custom 5 in the bridge.


My questions are: I obviously need new pots going to passive so

1) CTS or Alpha

2) Normal shaft or Long shaft


3)what gauge wire should I use to wire the guitar? 22?

Thank you for your help. Im ordering the stuff tonight and just need some quick answers from you kind folks.

Ok finally found the answer for the long or short shaft question on the esp forums. seems short shaft or all esp guitars seems to work.

Now just need info on Alpha or CTS.

Wire gauge would be awesome too although I expect to be able to find that answer fairly easy.

CTS or alpha doesnt make a difference. its just the value that matters. you need 500k.

yes, and a .22uf capacitor for the tone blead.\\


I use 22 ga wire. get it at Radio Shack. I also suggest getting some heat shrink wrap so you can put some wires together, and make your control cavity look nice, not like a plate of spaghetti.

I thought it was .47 for the tone bleed?

As for the CTS and Alpha, I know they will both work, Im wanting opinions on if either are better than the other. I want a really smooth and long taper, I hate jumps from 0 to 5 instantly them no change until it jumps to 10.
