Please read the following before you order: 1. As a general rule post-1977 production Les Paul's (with a control plate), excluding historic reissue Les Paul's, use long shaft pots. If you are uncertain whether your guitar uses short (3/8") or long (3/4") shaft pots, please double check before you order. 2. All parts in this kit use American not metric sizing. If you own an imported guitar (e.g. Japan, China, Mexico, etc.) the pots, switch and jack in this kit will not fit your guitar without enlarging the openings to 3/8" diameter. 3. The switchcraft toggle switch comes standard with a flat and a deep nut, depending on the thickness of the body of the guitar (this includes most Les Pauls), you may need to use the deep nut. 4. Returns are only accepted on this item if all parts are unused.
