my fender mim was broken because i broke the volume knob and i need to get a new 250k POT.

I took the guitar to the repair shop and he said he will charge me $40 for pot including installation.


I got my guitar back and he fu*cking installed 500k pot instead of 250k.

My strat is a single coil, which means 250k pot, and this fuc*ker installed dimarzio 500k pot.

will it make a difference? Is this bad?

Are you fu**ing capable of f***ing posting like a fu***ng adult? It makes reading your f****ng post a whole lot fu**ing easier if people don't have to wade through a f***ing load of f***s to find out what the f**k you're on about

500k pots give more treble response and a bit more output. If you don't like it just turn it down to about halfway and hey presto, it's 250k.

this made my day

500K pots are treblier. so just lower your tone knob.
Ibanez RG321MH (Air Classic/Tone Zone)
Fernandes Telecaster (Twang King/stock bridge pickup)
Blackstar HT-20 (Scumback 55 speaker/ Tung Sol tubes)

Just go back and ask for a refund. Say that you wanted a 250K pot and he installed a 500K pot, which was not what you asked for!

TS, you could just lower it halfway, but it's not what you asked for. For that sole reason, you should ask the tech to replace it free.

2. Well just tell him you asked for a 250K pot. You paid him to put in one. If he doesn't do it, demand a refund. Seriously, that guy didn't do what you said. Say to him it is if he was painting your walls red instead of white. You asked for a 250K and got 500K.

It doesnt effect bollocks on your guitar, I have 1 meg pots in my jag and a switch to go to 500k pots, the difference is very small and my non-guitar playing friends cant even notice it.
#11
1) $40 hahahahahahaha you got really got ripped off, a pot cost at most $5

2) go back to the shop and say he did it wrong and demand your money back. then go buy yourself a 250k pot and a soldering iron and do it yourself. and while you're at it you can pocket the change and thank me that you have it

If you post something all in capitals it changes it so only the first letter of each word are in caps

But yeah TS: If you didn't specify what pot you wanted him to put in it isn't his fault if he puts the wrong one in.

it doesnt matter whether he is angry as he can be
if u asked for and paid for 250K, then u have the right to request a refund
if that guy won't do it for u, he is just a bad businessman

btw, u REALLY need to chill out man
all the profanity and caps lock won't get u more help here
they just make YOU look bad

But yeah, just go ask for a refund if you haven't already. He installed something you didn't ask for. That or just live with it...

so your crapping your pants about a volume pot? did you even ask the guy for a 250k pot or did you just say i need a new pot cause my old one's broke? or did you say i need a 250k pot put in... there is a difference....

So what? The standard charge for wiring is 35 bucks. 5 bucks for the pot + 35= 40 bucks.

i'd have thought it would be common sense to put the same value pot that there was before if not specified, unfortunately these technicians they employ in shops are usually awkward know-it-all assholes, which is something i know from experience...

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

you're joking right? 500k will be much more volume (powerful). you should have all your pots replaced to 500k that's what all my gibson flying v's have installed... they work very well with certain pick-up styles like early dimarzio's and seymour duncans... you got lucky when he put that in there for you.

Single coils are usually uncontrollably bright with 500k pots.

Lol you dont get more volume just more top end.

Hardly, they dont make that much of a difference really, just a bit of extra top end, bit harsh with sucky stock pups on the bridge pup, but easily controled by the tone knob, its nice jangly and warm on the neck pup., bit like a tele in mid position.

And this is with 1meg pots.
