    Please read the following before you order:
    1. As a general rule pre-1977 production Les Paul's, many of the historic reissue Les Paul's, ES series, PRS and Hamer guitars use short 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 nut, depending on the thickness of the body of the guitar (this includes most Les Pauls), you made need to use the "vintage-style" deep nut.
    Returns are only accepted on this item if all parts are unused.
