    Hey.. I thought the same thing on trimming the pickup leads, I got a set of Tex/Mex I have put and pulled from a couple guitars and I keep telling myself to trim 'em. Quick tip on wiring I picked up after a few times, pre-tin the lugs and take some sand paper and scruff up where ya gonna place your wires on your pots and pre-tin. Makes for a lot nicer and easier job.

    Thanks for the tips! I have the parts to re-wire my Les Paul as well. There the Tone Pots weren't ever used by it's previous owner, so they make nice Snap, Crackle, and Crunch noises when you turn them while on the amp.

    I just haven't picked up the reamer yet to open the holes since my Epi has smaller holes than the posts from CTS.

    Ellsworth cheese curds, are THE best curds, bar none. Fight me.
    And I never had a fried cheese curd, until I moved away from Wisconsin... “Mozzarella sticks”, sure, all the time. But curds were always fresh and squeaky.

    All they probably need is some contact cleaner. I had some pots like that. Sprayed some deoxit and they’ve been good as new for over five years now. Every guitarist should have a can. Probably cheaper options but a can will last forever.
