    Please Help With Push Pull Pot

    Hi how are you. I am new to the forums and am in the parts collecting phase while i wait for my neck and body to arrive.

    I would like to make the neck pickup active on my evh via a push pull pot, however. I don't know what size pot to buy. I would like a dimarzio or a CTS. Will anyone of them fit the strat knob. I been reading some horror stories on the web about split shafts, solid shafts, knobs not fitting. People not being able to get the solder to stick on the dimarzio pot, assuming thats the correct one, and if it is there probably not sanding it enough and heating the pot up enough, anyway.

    What type should i buy? If you can give me a link where to buy what i need that'd be great,

    Thanks, all the best,

    Van

    I would like to try the Bourns. I hear they are very low friction, but not sure if it'll fit.

    If you buy the Bourns from Guitar Electronics - definitely better made than the DiMarzio on eBay - buy the tone knob from them as well:
