    That probably should mean something to me, but I have to plead ignorance. Does that mean they're really flat and surface mount? If so, they might be the last style I mentioned in my previous post. I'm guessing at this point. We need to hear from Mike....He's our pickup guru here.

    Yes. They are 1/4 to 3/8 thick. Surface mount.

I don't know what type your Stratotone pickups are. There are a few old Japanese pickups that were made in a really flat profile with refrigerator magnets.
    That would what we would assume--but I've seen references to them using 50...
    If that's what was in there & what Rickit prefers--that could be why...

    If you are able. Get a few pots of varied value and use alligator clips to test them outside of guitar before you install them so you don't have to do so much work to find the sweet spot. If you really want to be sure, label and record what you hear so you can easily compare.

    rickIt, does your pickup have rivets going through the top? Can you attach a pic?

    What's wrong with the old electrical? The guitar is worth a lot more with the original stuff. Hopefully you can get it fired up. Every time I get a guitar that has sat for many years they all seem dead when you 1st plug them in because the pot & brush have built up some corrosion on the contact surfaces. Move the controls rapidly & usually snap Crackle vroom away it goes. Then I just move the controls every time I play it & within a week they worked great.
