i would enlarge pots holes with a Dremel to fit better pots. a better pot guarantees a better sound and virtually endless life and perfect smooth operating without noises. DiMarzio pots are the best hands down. no reasons to not have your pots holes a couple millimeters larger.

Pickguard holes, sure, bring on whatever tools... but i distinctly remember chickening out with Petruccis, 3120s and PMCs... i ended up using generic japanese pots (Gotoh if i have to believe the man at the store )


I wish dimarzio made smaller shafted pots, cause its the same with stock knobs, its impossible to fit them :/

i wish too. but if you're a player you really need the best pots, no matter if you have to enlarge the holes, it IS worth. of course if you're a collector the problem doesn't even exist.

Remember that larger pots may have different heads so your control knobs might not fit. Not an issue on a regular guitar, but you might want to think twice on a PMC or LNG...
