So I acquired a duncan over the weekend, a mono jack and a 500k pot to switch my guitar from an EMG to a passive. Being that it's a Rhoads, I had to fish the wire though the wing and into the control cavity, get the pickup in the ring and installed, etc.
Once this was all done, I went to put the pot in the guitar. Well, the post of the EMG pot is slightly thinner than the CTS 500k pot I have, and the CTS won't fit in the guitar. So my question, does someone make a narrow post 500k pot?
Awww, fuck, you're kidding, right?
Is it a split shaft or a solid shaft pot? I think the solid shaft pots are thicker. Honestly, I've never run into this problem with a Jackson before. Even the oddball eighties ones.
