I've read stories of people saying how their guitar sound miraculously better after just changing to a different brand f pots. Are they just imagining it?
Here, I compare new CTS and Bourns pots with the original Epiphone pots (Alphas and JS). I also talk about pots in general and the reasons why you might want to change them.

Audio examples recorded through my Vox VT30 amp and a high quality Rode NT1 mic.
See part 2, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RdfIZE... where I evaluate the tapers, and talk about the other factors to consider when buying new pots.
In an upcoming video, I'll cover how to actually replace the pots, wire them up, and re-drill the holes in a semi-hollow body.
