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?

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.

Thanks. I did end up measuring them all.

2011 S970W is 6mm solid
2018 S1070PBZ is 6mm split
2008 SV5470F is 6mm solid

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.
