So I was screwing in a new 250k pot to a control plate on a guitar that im fixing up, and I noticed that there was a notch protruding from the bottom of the pot. So when I try to screw the pot on, it doesn't screw on level. Is this supposed to be this way? It drives me nuts! any and all help is appreciated! Thanks!
are you talking about the little square stud thing? i always cut those off.
Yeah, that's it! Thanks, I wasn't sure if it was ok to cut off!
On something like an amp or pedal people drill a small hole to fit the notch into and it prevents the pot from spinning. On guitar we tend to just cut it off.
