I recently went with 500k pots for both volume and tone in my Standard Tele... and really like enabling the full range of high frequencies from the pickups to be available (and then moderated, as needed, by using the tone control with a .047uF cap.) Previously, I only used 250k pots in the Tele, and left the tone control at 10 all the time. Now, I am really putting the tone control to good use and finding the enhanced highs especially nice with the neck pickup! What I’m wondering is, which 500k pot (the vol. or the tone) is providing the most benefit with this approach? How would it change if one of the two pots was 250k and the other was 500k? If I only had one 500k pot and one 250k pot available, which pot should be used with vol and which with tone - to enable the full high-frequency range of the pickups to be available?
