I've just purchased CTS 500K Long-Shaft pots for my Jackson DKMGT electric guitar (I'm replacing the EMG combo with a SD combo) and I've come to find out the diameters of the shafts are too large to fit through the volume and tone holes. I went about purchasing another set, and they also weren't what I was looking for.

Instead of attempting to enlarge the holes myself, would anyone be able to recommend the proper sort of pots I'd need?


Generally there are 2 sizes. 5/16 and 8mm I believe. Whichever one you have, get the other one.
I do not promise that this is 100% accurate.
