These are flat on the back and the shaft portion of the pot is not exposed.

I used these pots - three 500K and one 250K - to replace the original controls in my 1967 Guild Starfire IV. It was a tedious job - getting the old pots and wiring out and back in place through the F-hole but working carefully I persevered. Volume and tone controls are now working great again.

I would advise checking the dimensions, values and tapers of your existing potentiometers before selecting and purchasing replacement parts.

Sir. I had to drill the holes bigger to fit the pot in. The resistance& Tolerance is not good enough for a guitar control. There either all the way on or all the way off. There is no in between setting with them. I would not buy them again. Thank You Walter J Lindsley.PS The knobs don't fit the shaft.
