Thing is I am wanting separate tone and volume for each pickup without having to ruin the finish and look by drilling more holes (plus extra routing). I figure I could use two duel concentric pots to achieve this but I'm not sure if it is possible and wouldn't know which pots I'd need/want. Any advice on this matter?
You'll have to drill out the holes already in place to fit the pots and their knobs in. I just recently made the switch from Hz's to 707's, and it was fairly easy while also being extremely annoying. I know nothing of concentric pots, but if they are what I think they are, you may have a problem in that the control cavity is barely enough to fit the EMG pickup buss, the battery, switch and pots. I think you may need to rout anyways...

If you're going to 'like' my posts, give me some rep instead.
