    Question What Pots, Toggle Switch, Output Jack & Nut For Charvel Model 5FX?

    Hello, I was wanting to know what my fellow Charvel Model series owners would recommend for replacement Pots, 3-Way Toggle Switch, Output Jack & Nut (I want get rid of the LSR roller nut and replace it with a proper nut). Guitar currently has an EMG-85 in the bridge and an SA single coil in the neck and I'm going to passive pickups, most likely Seymour Duncan's. I know on the USA made Jackson's I'm pretty sure they use CTS pots and Switchcraft toggle switches and output jacks but I don't know what size pots, etc. I need for my Charvel? Mine has a volume and tone controls and a 3-way toggle swicth with what I believe to be the original black metal knobs.

    Passive Humbuckers are usually 500k value pots so they are not overly dark.

    As far as the physical size, you might have to measure what you already have in there.
