I've got a mim strat that was originally sss config, until I switched the pups to hss (the third being a stacked single coil hot rails), and I assumed I would need to change the pots to higher values, but didn't at the time, and now they're going out, and long story short, should I replace both the pots with 500k pots? The single coil in the middle is a yjm, but I'm having an impossible time of getting it to sound near the volume of the humbuckers without raising it ridiculously high.
Do you have vol/tone/tone? Then switch just the volume pot to 500k.
Yeah, I think the humbucker disables the 2nd tone pot (or the schematic I used did...), but my tone pot, which is controlling the neck pickup, is also going out, so could I use a 500k on that?
