    Hello everyone, my epi 335 will be getting some new pups and I'm wanting some nice push pulls for the coil splitting. Something with an even taper from quiet to loud and a bit of physical resistance as they are turned. Thanks

    If you're wanting to build your own, they pretty much all use CTS.

    If you can find them, try some push-push pots. They don't sit up so high. I used to use a Yamaha guitar that had them.

    Thanks for the answers, I'm not much of a gearhead so that helps. I remember those push push on the yamaha artist, and i liked them, my friends artist was sooo heavy .

    I saw a Yamaha that had push-push pots, so much more user friendly than push -pull.
    Push Push, just hit it!

    I have several guitars that either came with or were modified for Push-Pull or Push-Push for coil splitting and I have found that I never use it in real-life situations. Even when it sounds good like on my Spalted Tele.

    Being a basement rock star I love the feature. Both my main HH guitars have push/pull pots for various reasons (coil split, phase etc).

    The only thing about push/push is never try to remove tight fitting knobs when they're in the down position. The shaft stops will strip every time.
