You can certainly replace the pots to eliminate coil-tapping on it. However, it's unnecessary. Just keep the knobs pushed down at all times and you'll get the full humbucker sound. The only reason you'd really need/want to change them is if you wanted some hotter pots, such at 750k's for a brighter and less restricted sound.

Might as well keep them, though. I'm not a huge fan of coil-taps myself, but it does give you more sounds, and more sounds is never bad.

+1 I installed coil taps into my guitar and i love it, if it comes with it do NOT remove it because itll run you a bit of cash to do it over again if you desire. I wouldnt get rid of them for anything, makes cleans so much more versatile, and your overall sound as well. Great for punk stuff where you need that choppy, highly accented notes if you get what i mean. And if you don't want to use it just dont. No harm to your sound at all
