Nope, all Gibsons are already set-up for the 3/8" size CTS pots so you are good to goHi - apologies if this has been answered, but i didnt see it if it was.
I have a 2001 LP Standard, and a 2012 LP Trad Pro, would i have to expand the holes at all to fit a new CTS pot?
Thanks in advance for your reply.
You're welcome.Thank you, sir! The Epi comment from someone is what really threw me off?? Would have figured it to be the same.
Any dealer worth recommending over another to buy a CTS pot?
Jonesy, help!! So I ran into the curved top issue on my Epi 2014 LP Standard trying to install the beautiful Switchable Vintage Modern LP wiring (short shaft) that you prewired for me. Bridge tone and volume fit like a charm; neck not so much. What do you suggest?
Thanks, Glad you like this thread!/
Thank you for this excellent tread!
Would you know how to ascertain the value (250k, 300k or 500k) on a vintage Gibson, early 70's, thanks.
Its in the codes at the back of the pot, but how to read the numbers?!
I think a T handled reamer is the safest method, a few turns on each hole and your done.What's the best way to ream out the holes on an Epi? Just use a 3/8" drill bit, file it or what?

If you have to use a drill you want to run it in reverse as to not pull out a big chunk of your top. The only time I drill is with a 335 type guitar where the reamer won't fit down through, so you have to drill or use some sandpaper or rat tail file.
Pretty much all the epi's and other import LP's all take the short shaft pots. Yes you would notice a dramatic difference in how your V & T controls function, and you will reduce the muddiness with 50's wiring, better pots, caps and switch. Not all CTS pots are made the same so the taper and quality will vary.
Your welcome, glad you found this thread usefulThank you for imparting your vast knowledge
What about for the toggle switch of Epis? I have a Custom LP. Also, in general, would it be better to get a 1MEG instead of 500k pots? I just found a 1MEG and the price was the same with the 500k
Thanks in advance!
