Yamaha Pacifica 1221 Potentiometers (Pots)
Hi everyone. Has been a very, very, VERY, long time since I logged into the forum.
As you see, the matter in question is about Yamaha's Pacifica potentiometer (Pots).
My volume pot aint working so I must change it.
The main question is, What pot should I put?
According to the Pot spec, it says: 15A500K
I readed here (sound.westhost.com/pots.htm) that old codes for pots was:
A = Lineal
C = Log (Audio)
but the "New" code says
B = Lineal
A = Log (Audio)
For my personal experience, since my first guitar (a Washburn X10), the Pacifica has a Log volume pot. Still, I dont really know what it means by "old" (maybe the at the 50's?)
Now the main problem.
The only pots that I can buy (because Im from Argentina, so I have to stuck with a few brands):
Gotoh (mini or standar size).
What I dont really know is if the Pacifica uses standar or mini pot's size.
I opened the backplate and the pots are kindda small about (1.5cm width / diameter).
If I can Im going to upload some pics of it.
So, those are my doubts about this. Any advice or comment are welcome.
Thanks in advice!
