Won''t work as volume control
I bought a bulk pack of these. The ones I received have the out lug (left side as you''re looking at the back of the pot) NOT connected to the carbon strip in any way! That means this control will only work as a tone control - yes it will be no load but since the one side is not touching anything will not work as a volume control. I came to this conclusion after incredible frustration in a J bass and I started measuring pots. The salesmen at Allparts mentioned that a lot of customers have mentioned these don''t read in your meter (which they won''t since one end isn''t connected) but I wish they would have mentioned they won''t work for volume operation.
