    Ahh. I could deal with the lugs but not with the lack of center detent. Thanks!

    Really, I would just wait 'til tomorrow and call Lakland or Hanson directly and get the correct part. At first I thought it was a common pot, but since it obviously isn't, do it right, I say.

    As always, acronyms.

    Edit: Or if you emailed them now, they might get back to you first thing tomorrow morning. I'm sure that's one of their respective Monday morning priorities.

    Well, not to keen on rigging something up with a resistor...or paying $50 for a pot :)


    I contacted Lakland, a new blend pot is $18. I'm probably going to try the ones that icecycle linked to for 18 cents first. Specs all match, just not sure if it has a detent. I'm willing to risk 18 cents to see!

    Also ask them is it dual A50K or A50K+C50K.

    It's a Lakland preamp, not an EMG. Plus, EMG uses 25k blend pots.

    Seems you are correct. I just checked with EMG and prior to 3 years ago when they did more hardwired stuff EMG did make 50k blend pots. And they are out of inventory now, I asked.

    Does anyone know WHY lakland uses 50k blend pots? I'm doing a pickup swap and want to do 500K and was surprised to see 50K in there stock.
