    Oops, ordered the wrong tuners. They don't fit. I have a 6 in-line headstock and the centre to centre distance of the two outside holes is 129mm. Distance from centre of hole to centre of hole is 25mm. Would these fit?

    Standard Tuners - Bean Chrome
    or
    K-Style Tuners 6L - Bean Chrome (set)

    Don't want tuners that have the little pins on the baseplate.

    Can you send a pic of the tuners you have? I'll be able to make a better recommendation then.

    These are the ones I bought from you. The screw holes on both sides is what's causing them not to fit. K-Style Tuners - Bean Chrome
    Cheers

    That's what I figured. I'm ok with those. Already picked up an order today and the pot was in it :) Two more questions dear incredibly helpful vendor....
    1) How do I exchange the tuners I picked up today for the tuners I'm about to order from you?
    2) What do I do with the tab on the pot?

    Just looked up your order. I see the issue... You bought these 3+3 style tuners meant for Les Pauls, etc.
    K-Style Tuners - Bean Chrome

    Just come back to the warehouse 9am-4pm Mon-Fri, and I will take care of the swap or refund. Looking at the picture of that headstock, I'm not sure any of our tuners will fit without reaming out the holes. Bring your guitar in and we can size up some different tuners for you to see what will work best for you. If nothing works, we'll take back the ones you bought.

    All Alpha pots come with that little tab. It will bend/snap off with a pair of pliers.

    Wiring the push pull I got from you folks. It's this one here: Alpha - A500K Push-Pull Split Shaft Pot
    From the diagram below, I can't tell which way the pot is oriented. Is it shown with the lugs up and the shaft pointing away from me like this?

    Here's the wiring diagram from Seymour Duncan for a 3-way, dual HB config with coil splits.

    Why does every site seem to have a different way of wiring for this configuration? I'm going to go with the SD one though.

    Yes. Think of it like a slide switch on the inside. The switch lugs closest to the body of the pot will be active in the "up/pulled" position. The middle lugs are the common. The bottom lugs, furthest from the body of the pot, will be active in the "down/pushed-in" position.

    If you follow that drawing, you would split the coils in the "up/pulled" position.

    Wiring diagrams for Push-Pull pots can vary depending on who is drawing them. Most frequently, the DPDT/switch part of the pot will be oriented with the lugs closest to the pot's body being the "up/pulled" position, regardless how the body/lugs of the pot are being depicted in the drawing.

    Hope that helps!

    All your parts worked great. For some reason though, the old 3-way switch was reversed. I tried just flipping it around but one wire was too short. Spent another 20 min pulling things apart to lengthen it.
