I like a pot that turns down (volume or tone) smooth and consistent, rather than nothing nothing nothing, then everything. Do I want a linear taper pot? I never can remember. Somehow I prefer to look at 5 as halfway open. Why would anyone want it any different than this? If I turn up to 2, I expect approximately 20% of full. At 7 I expect 70% full. Please enlighten me on this. I am sure "some" of my guitars perform like I expect, while others have a pronounced hump then nothing.
