Pots For Humbuckers

Recommended Posts

I'm guess I'm being a bit lazy, but I have these spare 250k pots I'd like to use up in the new build rather than have to go buy some more 500k pots.

The guitar is the mojo#2 I've been working on, solid mahogany body, single cut with maple cap. Pickups are GFS hot hex overwound humbuckers.

As far as I know, 500k's are usually used for HB's on les paul/prs-type guitars as they don't muddy the already bassy tone as much, and 250k's are normally the pot of choice for calming the bright twangy single coil strats and teles. I guess that's the accepted wisdom.

Would I be ok sticking with the 250k's for my new guitar or will it come out too bassy without enough top end? Waddaya think? Am I just being lazy?
