I was just browsing around for information on different pots when I came across this juicy page filled with comparisons between Gibson and CTS pots, as well as some other helpful information.
We've all heard about No Load tone pots that remove themselves from the circuit when they're at 10, or fully on, and though I've never experienced them myself, I've heard around this forum that they are better because when they disconnect themselves, it can increase clarity and dynamics. Is this actually true?
Anyway, this page shows how to do what they call the "Nail Polish" mod, which is basically putting a bit of nail polish or other insulator at the end of the resistive element. And apparently this makes the pot act like a no load pot, assuming you could disassemble the pot to begin with.
Do you think this would actually work? Would it be easy to take apart the pots and do this simple mod?
