    Which 500k pots for an Eclipse?

    I'm hoping to change the pickups in my Eclipse (currently active EMGs) to passives. I hear the holes in the body for Eclipses is too small for most pots such as CTS etc and the holes need to be enlarged. There is no way I am drilling my guitar so wondered if anyone had done this without drilling and which pots they used?

    I've heard Alpha make smaller pots, anyone any experience with these?

      Very little wood has to be removed to fit CTS pots. The tool for the job is a tapered reamer. I bought one on Ebay for $5 or $6. I ended up re-installing the EMGs at a later date and there were no fit problems or signs that anything had ever been done.
