No, it needs to be soldered. Even if you were able to get a connection, the problem with wrapping the wire around the pot is that the wire will move if it is not soldered into place. Since the casing of this pot is so difficult to solder to, we recommend running a wire or component to a ground lug elsewhere in the guitar or circuit.

Apparently, the other responder to your question didn't read it very carefully! If, in fact, you wrap the ground around the shaft threads, and screw it down tightly, you should achieve an acceptable ground (of course, I'm sure you will check this before you completely re-assemble the guitar!). And, unless you have gremlins in your control cavity, or completely abuse the instrument regularly, that wire should stay right where you left it until you dis-assemble the guitar again!

Horrible! Don't waste your money. Very difficult to solder to casing as it is stainless steel. Requires special flux and the heat required to get a decent solder joint ruins the pot.

Excellent pot for Stratocaster volume control. Smooth but firm in the dial range with a excellent taper throughout the turn. Much better the CTS/Fender pot. Since it is a totally sealed pot with a better carbon trace and carbon wiper it should also last longer. I have gone through a lot of volume pots and I want something that last longer then the standard pot.
