    Hey.

    You just scrape the carbon strip inside the pot and make it thinner.
    Use a practice pot and a multimeter.

    It is easy but you have to open the pot.

    That sounds correct. I also had killer success with one R8 putting stainless steel rods in the guitar for the ABR1.
    On my other R7, nothing changed.

    Also, make sure the string slots are perfect.
