FDP Forum / The 'Pup' Tent / P90 and a Tele Bridge pickup - 2 volumes no tone, what pots to use ?

Going to re-wire my Aerodyne Tele to a 2 pickup / no tone config like my John 5 Tele.

I've got a Lollar P90 in the neck and a Lollar Special T in the bridge.

The Bridge pickup is good with a 250k pot, but thinking I should go with a 500k for the P90 neck ?

Will this cause an adverse affect on tone when selecting both pickups at the same time ?

I always use 250k or 300k with P90s.

If irritation occurs

discontinue use.

I like 300k with P90s. They also work great with Fender-style single coils.

Remember to use an audio/log taper pot for volume controls. These give you better control over the roll-off.

Linear-taper pots are too...linear, but they do work fine for tone controls.

The 300k is a good idea, a fairly good compromise.

I did a Tele build, recently, and used a 300k volume pot. It is an excellent sounding guitar. It seems to have a tad more snap and bite.
