    I've made a threat before about getting rid of one tone pot on my strat to give me more space. The volume knob gets in my way.
    Now I realised it may be a better idea to just move the knobs closer together.
    I'm wondering how far apart the pots have to be so it won't affect the electronics/sound? I couldn't find an answer to this via google.

    I believe the spacing is only about getting fingers around knobs. They're all connected together in the wiring chain, and they're passive modifiers, so spacing shouldn't otherwise matter (may be a different answer for active pickups? I don't think so, but maybe).

    I mean the space on the inside of the guitar. I believe it should be fine as long as they're not touching but just to be sure..
    what you said made sense. Thanks.
