They will be metric cts pots. About 95% of the world uses the metric measurement system. Epiphone guitars are made in one of those places.

That’s incorrect. The new inspired by line uses standard CTS pots, same as Gibson.

The pots and hardware are metric sized. Pots knobs bridges stopbars, Gibson parts will not normally fit on Epiphones. "Inspired By Gibson model Epiphones" are built at the Qingdao factory in China using all metric parts with CTS pots and switches. Like my slightly modified " 2020 Inspired by Gibson ES-339" below, and like all ES's it is all metric.

SO I've been seeing that it is metric. I just bought an inspired by 335 and would like to replace with push pull pots. Been searching around trying to find out if I need to get metric CTS again which it seems although some say onramp CTS will fit. Does anyone know if this is true and if so  will i be needing new caps?
