I would really appreciate it if someone could tell me where to get either of these parts. It seems like all the solderless jacks are the smaller import size (5/16" I believe). I found the jack EMG Reccomends (switchcraft 152B shown here in nickel Switchcraft SC-152b 1/4" Stereo Panel Jack -Nickel - Output Jacks by GPDUSA.COM (http://www.gpdusa.com/Output_Jacks-Switchcraft_SC_152b_1_4_Stereo_Panel_Jack_Nickel.h tml)) at GPD but its out of stock. Does anybody know if it can be ordered in black anywhere? I've seen it black on guitars that come with it stock, but I can't find it aftermarket in black.

I think that's the closest you'd get... Lots of black hardware has come off the market because of the type of paint used and environmental concerns... The Switchcraft one looks to be nickel anyways. not black, but AllParts doesn't carry that... Is the jack particularly visible? I've never felt jack color to be much of a detractor, they're pretty much silver on most guitars :lol:

I'm guessing the EMG long shaft solderless pots are 3/8"? It says they work on les paul guitars, and most les pauls (american) are 3/8" right?

Enviorment be damned, I want matching hardware :mad:

Not particularly visible, I would just prefer black if its available. Thanks for the help! Any experience with the pots perchance?
