    I have a 2002 Gibson SG Supreme and am changing out the pickups and doing a custom wiring. I wanted to have four push pull pots (like the Jimmy Page wiring). I was going to order them from RS GuitarWorks (CTS pots), but wanted to know if push pull pots will even fit in an SG since the body is so thin?

    if the push / pull have this size or smaller, then for 99% they will be fit in the cavity

    Yes they will. But Asian import metric ones might be a bit small for the hole.

    insert the push / pull into the cavity. and let's get the head out of the hole. now working from the external surface, if it is necessary (in case the hole is bigger than the push / pull pot head), we can insert a washer before inserting the nut. so the nut around the pot will be screwed onto the washer. and so it will be stable (as a washer you can use the pointer washers)
