Pot Shaft Size

Does anyone know what it would be on the S series guitars. Is it standard or will I have to measure each of my 3 guitars' shafts?

Re: Pot Shaft Size

I think, from memory, either 6.35mm or 6.5mm, but you'd have to measure as pots from an earlier era are the smaller shaft.

Re: Pot Shaft Size

The simple answer is there are metric [typically called Asian shaft] and SAE. You should be able to understand what guitars have what from that description alone.

Even pickups don’t have standard spacing anymore. There’s now F spacing.
