    One problem I have is the Stewmac knobs won't fit tightly onto the Stewmac CTS pots. When you turn to full stop in either direction the knobs will spin on the shaft. Any fixes?

    If the CTS pots have a split shaft, you can insert some cardboard, thin wood slivers, etc. anything that has some give. This will give the knobs some grip but still compress enough to remove them when necessary.

    Wired it up with Guitarfetish pickups (which sound surprisingly good), CTS 250k pots, etc.
