    Perfect for my Squier Vintage Modified Jazz V
    By Jeff O'Connor from on 10/1/2016
    I really needed a replacement for the stock pots in this Squier VM Jazz V, this was a perfect fit!
    Very solid controls, smooth slope for the volume and tone. Solid input jack.
    Perfect, all done!

    Just what the Dr. ordered!

    Original pots on my 1974 Jazz were getting scratchy. The Richter instantly fixed the problem. So now I can worry about my playing instead of possible equipment malfunction. Note: If you own a vintage guitar, make sure to keep all the original parts in case you have to sell down the road! BC

    Hassle free flexibility
    By Dave A from on 7/8/2016
    Got this to replace the corroded non orig DiMarzio pots and Sprague orange drop in my '68 Jazz.Works great,pots are sealed split shafts with push on smaller than Fender traditional knobs.
    Workmanship on my example was tidy and clean with the exception of 1 binding set screw which I didn't fix.Did exactly what I needed.As mentioned by Bob P the terminal block would be very useful to anyone experimenting with pickups.

    This was very easy to install on my Jazz bass. No soldering what so ever. There was no loss of tone or volume when replacing the regular jbass analog controls. The knobs are solid and tight, and turn well. This will allow me to easily experiment with other pickups.

    Your nuts if you don't give it a try. Simple to install, even my wife could do it. Very responsive, great deal. I do recommend a bridge ground though
