I'm not a big fan of active pickups but I seen this and thought it was really interesting. So I decided to share it here for anyone who hasn't heard of it yet.

And what are your thoughts on this neat little volume pot?

Hmmm, might be something to consider. Easier than a pick up swap.

Only if you'd replace one of your existing pots with this casey.
Otherwise you'd have to drill, and that can go from bad to disaster in 0.5 seconds flat in many, many ways....

I don't use my single coil pot knob anyways. ;)

You mean the mini toggle ?
It might not fit depending on actual size, which leads back to drilling or routing...
Pluspoint is that there'd be less chance of cracking if you route the existing hole.

No I have 2 tone knobs. One for my humbuckers one for the single coil set up
