    I changed the mini Alpha pots , jack and cap in my new Squier VM Jazz 5 bass with CTS pots , a Switchcraft jack and orange cap . The bass was fine as it was but I like the bass enough I thought I'd upgrade the electrics and thought it would be a nice project . The pickups have cloth covered wire stock but I didn't want to mess with that so I used plastic coated . The shielding isn't bad on the stock basses so I left it alone . They had all the ground wires soldered to the case of the neck volume pot but I changed that to closer to a star grounding scheme and used a lug to tie them all together and to the cavity shielding . No trouble fitting full size pots to this bass .

    Here's a pic .
