Semi-hollowbody Pickup and Pot Trick

Changing a pickup or a pot on a semi-hollowbody guitar, such as a Gibson ES-335? It can be challenging to fish the control harness through the guitar’s f-holes and to get each pot and switch back into their appropriate mounting hole. Here’s a trick you can try: find some rubber tubing that fits snuggly over the potentiometer shaft. Now, you can push the pot through the f-hole with the tubing, and pull it back in through its mounting hole with the tubing when you are finished with whatever mod or repair you are doing.
