FDP Forum / The Gretsch Forum / Mini pots

Just wondering if the mini pots Gretsch used in the pre-Fender era (i.e. - the made in Japan models) were ok in quality. Seems alot of folks switch them out for full size pots, especially when they upgrade the pickups to TV Jones, etc. What do you think?

They are good quality.

Many players associate the "dime" sized pots of Japanese-made guitars with the lower quality of other Asian imports that use dime-sized pots.

Bigger is not always better. Full-sized Alpha pots are considered good by today's standards, but these MIJ dime pots are even better than the modern Alphas.
