    Metric kits? not that I`m aware of. However having done several metric Japanese guitars It is very easy to just enlarge the whole a bit. They are very close and minimal enlarging is required. Just takes a few minutes. Good luck.

    interesting , I'm just not sure Im confident enough to rewire a guitar with individual parts.... I was going to do a prewired kit from rs and just pop it in... I dont have a problem drilling.. I was just worried about cracking...

    I'd ream by hand. A bit in a drill can be a bit too agressive. You don't need to open the hole too much, and if you do it nice and slow, you will not ruin the finish. Do a little bit, try fitting the pot, if its too small still, repeat. I've done this numerous times and it won't screw up your git.
