I found a really high quality volume pot but it is only 100kohms. My guitar needs 500kohms. Is there a way to make that pot function like a 500kohm pot? Can i add a resister to make it 500k or will that not work?
It will still work fine, it will just be a little bit darker sounding and the taper will be different.
You can't make it 500k ohms. It will be super dark and you will have lower output.
Why not just buy a really high quality 500K pot instead of faffing around trying to get something to do what it isn't designed to do?
Because buying is not an option.

Well sounds like a bad idea then. Thanks for the input all.
