Music Man Stingray 5 pot modification



























This is a repair tip/mod done to one MusicMan Stingray 5.One of the pot broke a leg.Since its an active system,the pot would likely be different from passive system.Looking at the damaged pot indicates 50k pot on its back.Due to the urgency I had to figure out other fitting replacement that would do the job.A walk to the local Fender Distributor for strings made me stumble on a couple of CTS 50k Audio pots.From the packaging I know its been there for many years.I bought all just in case plus it does fits the description (brand and resistance profile) of the broken one.The pot legs differs but easily resolved using pre cut bare copper wire.The unit works fine however I did overlooked one thing,the old pot has a center but the new one doesn't. I explain to the owner that for now he has to detent it by eye and ears.Job done,music goes on.

Some helpful link for reference

Thank you
