Hey all, i am looking to replace the pots on my Ibanez AS73, apparently this would be a good idea.

500K pots are what have been recommended, but I am unsure about stuff like audio taper and stuff, and who makes decent ones.

Also do i need to use different types of pot for like, tone and voume?

Anything else i have missed??

Advice appriciated, thanks

Also, check whether the pots are logarithmic or not

I don't know what this means man :L

Logarithmic or linear, it's basically how the pots react when you turn them,

Use logarithmic or log pots for volume, linear for tone
