Hey quick question to any1 who's listening!, Im gonna replace the bridge pickup on my epiphone les paul with a gibson 500t humbucker. While reading reviews on harmony I have read about 300k and 500k pots.. could some 1 tell me what the difference is? and also if I would need to change the pot's on my epiphone LP to use with the new pickup..

Thanks, chris

300k will bleed more treble frequencies to ground resulting in a warmer, slightly bassier tone. 500k does the opposite and allows more treble frequencies through giving you a brighter, slightly treblier tone

I'd go with 500k personally.

Edit: and no you wouldn't need to change the pots to use the new pickups unless there's something wrong with them.

if you're really into vintage tone, 300K would suit you, but I dont think that's what you want

500K are fine
