    So this might be crazy but I'm wondering if it's possible to use Concentric Control Pots in a HH tele to get Gibson like controls.

    I recently picked up a set of Sheptone Blue Sky pickups with the Peter Green mod and put them in my HH tele. They're great but I'm wanting to be able to vary the out of phase position.

    Would concentric control pots work and how would I do it?

    Also, the pickups are traditional braided cable, which might make it harder...

    It's a great idea, IMO!
    I'd want the volume on the bottom, tone on top.

    Does anyone know if they make stacked pot knobs that both have the same diameter (rather than stepped). The goal would be to make it look closer to an standard pot knob in appearance.
