Its been done, not by me but its been done before, you'll have to screw in the pickguard on the body, obviously.

I've done it before and the pots where long enough to thread barely, but just enough to snug them. I don't remember if the pots I used where long-shaft or not though.

Nope. The pots were long enough.
