Dumbarse order wrong pots !

Hey. I ordered stuff for a project RG I'm doing ATM and ended up ordering the wrong pots. I gots these Mini Pots instead of the full size model.

Q1: What diference is there between a Mini-sized pot and a full sized pot electrontically speaking?

Q2: Why do guitar spares outfits stock Mini-sized pots for anyway?

Q3: Will these Mini-sized pots affect the Dimarzio HBs in any way?

Cool & Cheerz, SB.

Re: Dumbarse order wrong pots !

Q1, Q3The physical size of the pot shouldn't matter as long as the values are the same. The main problem you may have is the pots not fitting in the guitar.
Q2 For people who need them

K coolaz. They do fit allright. Just a little fiddly with wiring and soldering I expect.
