Will this fit my guitar?
This Les Paul Junior® wiring kit will genuine Gibson® guitars. It can also be used in any guitar as long as you are prepared for some modification. If installing into an LP/SG copy or an imported model, it is likely that you will have to drill the control knob holes to a larger diameter (M10) The pot shafts are 9.52mm and the majority of pots on imported models use smaller diameter pots. The same applies for the control knobs themselves - you may be required to purchase imperial control knobs.
