500k will give you a warmer tone because it bleeds off some of the higher frequencies to the ground I think

Kind of off topic but how can a pot make any difference. By adding 500K you're just going to have a more sensitive volume control, but for someone whihc has the pot turned to 0 resistance all the time how can it make a difference?

you would think that what you are saying would be true...but from what i have read on here is just simply isnt true...now you might want to await someone who knows their electronics better to explain further

A recent study shows that 92% of all teenagers have moved on to rap music. Put this in your profile if you are one of the 8% who stayed with the real music

I am buying everything from Warmoth. It will not be pre-assembled, so I need to get all of the parts and wire it and build it myself. I am buying 2 500 pots and I need to know what capacitor I need for the tone pot.
