emg recommends using 25k pots.. I was wondering would it harm anything if I just soldered an active 81 too the original 500k vol pot??
It wont harm anything. But it will basically be a switch instead of a dial. It will either be all volume, or if you turn it down, be completely off.
Just use the 25k pots. they come with the pickups. No need to solder, it's just a quick connect system.
well I got them used and it came with a solder system that's why I was asking..
