I can only seem to find Push/Pull Pots that are are 'all-or-nothing' tapers even if the are Log not Lin ;-( IS there a way to add resitors or something to even out a more gradual taper..?

Also, Is it possible to have FENDER style GreaseBucket tone controls on a Les Paul with 50s wiring? Anyone tried this? ANY good? Thanks!
Can't help you out on the pots, but the greasebucket should work fine. Looked at typical 50's les paul wiring and can't really see a reason it won't work. I have the greasebucket on a bass and I love it. Gonna do all my axes pretty soon.
