Playing a righty Jackson pointy thing, and the knobs are right under my arm so that I turn them, and it's impossible not to.

What solutions have you found?

On a more serious note: if you don't use the controls, and if the control cavity is spacious enough, you could take the knobs off and tuck the pots inside and plug the "potholes":

That is exactly what I have done. I have found that most control cavities are large enough to keep the knobs and washers on the pots in the cavity so they don't get lost. I also wrap them in tape so they don't create any unwanted electrical connections or get adjusted.

Pushing the pots inside? I love that idea, and that's exactly whats going to happen.

I'm going to make my own plugs for the holes.

This has made my day a happier one.

So, popped them down into the cavity, taped it all down inside, and voilĂ , no knobs in my way. i've got some little wood plugs to go in the holes, just to keep dust out of them.

Shit, this simple idea actually opens up a lot of double cut guitars and basses to me.
