    According to the Bourns Data Sheet, the length from mounting face to the end of the switch is just over an inch. Add some for washer, clearance bend the ground tab on the back down and ..... yikes. Doesn't look like it will do it. My old SG has a 1" deep well. Maybe, but it doesn't look like it will go.

    Thanks for the info. From what I've read no one makes the flat kind any more so I think I'm out of luck. At least it will be easier to wire the regular pots!:rotflmao

    Yeah you can do it. Just get the short shaft ones. I had one from Alpha in my 61 RI SG. Replaced it with 2 from WCR. Then replaced the WCR with RS Guitarworks tone pots because I was tired of the coil-split sound. I never really found it all that usable with my set up.
