a center detent means that when you get to the center while turning, you will feel a click, this means it is at 0. as you go either way on the knob, you will go to either -5 or 5. if im not mistaken it is usually used on active pups usually used for tone as far as lows, mids and highs go....
then the concentric pot i believe is just a blender pot, but dont quote me on it....

Mine too Chris helped out on the shematic for the strat I am building also, I am just hung up on which pots , to order so a concentric is are adjusted individual ?? and a center adds one way and decreases the other way My poor brain is hurting again.

okay Monradon, i think i have some Aspirin for ya.
center detent means: it has a click stop in the middle of the rotation. could be a single pot, could be a dual concentric, could be a tandem.
dual concentric means: there are 2 pots stacked. they are operated independently. the small (diameter) solid inner shaft operates the rear portion. the larger (diameter) hollow outer shaft operates the front portion.
tandem means: there are 2 pots stacked. both pots are operated from a single solid shaft.
clear as mud?
