    I put a liberator in my Strat along with all new pickups and a 3-way toggle and new tone pots. The plug in aspect saved me tons of frustration with trying to solder like a pro! It's all pretty straight forward on how to wire in and out of it. Only thing is that it takes up a bit more room than a typical volume pot. I'd definitely stick with Liberator pots from now on!

    Easy to switch out pickups but a little tricky for a 5 way and 3 pickups. Colors don't matter except green and bare.

    A time saver

    You use ONE of these with how-ever many OTHER POTS you need and you will still need to do some soldering. If you are familiar with doing work on an electric instrument this is a great time saver!

    This is not a magic device that spares you from soldering altogether or still knowing how to properly wire the instrument.

    Also at $25.00 you really need to consider if you change your pickups enough or that the time it saves you soldering are worth the extra $15.00.

    I've found that Dimarzio pickups have weak wires that can be a nuisance to solder and these pots have saved me a lot of frustration if I need to put the pickups in (and as a matter of experience most Dimarzio pickups end up getting pulled out of instruments anyway).

    easy to install, Good but Huge Delay in volume.

    the install was easy! it also allows me to swap pickups in a breeze. but after install and hooking guitar up to an amp i noticed a slight delay in the volume. I mean the volume wont come on until the pot is turned a quarter the way up. and if you turn the volume up really fast when your pegged out the volume will continue to rise until it reaches full volume which is about a second or so of a delay. but if you turn the volume up very slowly everything works fine. Its not a huge issue for me but it might be for someone else.

    Ordered 3 of these along with new SD pups for a bass. First thing I noticed on the instructions was "solder this point". 3 of these won't fit in the body cavity without extensive routing. Not pleased at all. Will be returning.
