    I made my pickguard to suit my Bareknuckle juggernaut the other day im nearly ready to install it, but, I have one more question, do I need a longer pot than the original? if not how do you install the pot and knob so that the knob doesn't rub on the pickguard? cheers

    I used the same pot, I just didn't push down the knob too hard. I think I also left off the washers that were on the back of the pot, so that gave it some more clearance.

    If you're having issues with the knob going to far down the shaft and rubbing the pickguard, you could also try jamming a bit of crumpled paper or something into the hole in the knob, to make the hole more shallow.

    Just print the 8 string one off, don't cut the neck pocket out, and place it on your guitar. Mark where your neck sits and cut it out.

    My printed copy is undersized by about 1.5 CM, I'll probably just trace around it on another sheet of paper to correct for that.
