I'm no expert, but I'd imagine some pots, especially pots that are cleanly soldered by human hands, would be more responsive than others; that is, better gradual volume change rather than having the volume suddenly drop off.

I know there are also different methods of wiring the pots that give better results (in what area, I couldn't tell you).

Someone with more knowledge about it can tell you more.

Dear Sir or Madam,
The "pots" are potentiometers which are responsible for allowing certain amounts of the signal, in the case of your volume pot, and the treble frequencies only, in the case of your tone pot, to be diverted to ground. The quality of the potentiometer dictates how effectively this can be done, which therefore has an effect on your tone. In addition, a more durably built potentiometer is less apt to break, develop a crackle, or become dirty and hard to turn.
In closing, the pots are not "for the knobs," as you so crudely put it. Knobs are not magical devices, they must be connected to something. That "something" is a potentiometer which interacts with the rest of the circuitry of your guitar and amplifier.
Sincerely yours,

This is great advice, but too bad he won't be able to read it....
