i want new pots for my epi les paul

what type should i get for the volume and tone? (audio taper, linear taper..etc.?)

i know their value should be 500k, shouldn't it?
#2
500k is typically used with humbuckers.

Audio taper is typically used for volume and linear is typically used for tone. Some people prefer audio taper for all though.
#3
500k, a longer shaft is usually a good thing in my opinion, dont know the difference between those two, i just want the ****ers to turn
#4
i use audio taper for both. i want smoother taper than just an 80:20 ratio audio taper though... i want more like 60:40 which is closer to linear, but still audio.... vintage Les Pauls from the late 50s had that kind of pots. they're excellent.
