I recently won one of these pickups-

And I was wondering what kind of pots I would need to buy. or if all pots are the same or similar.

You should get 300k or 500k pots. The higher k'value the more treble you get. If you have mahogany-like wood go for 500k if you have a brighter tone in the wood go for the 300k.

I would like to borrow this Thread. Which brand does the best pots?
Empty tankard! Empty Tankard!

Generally 500k with humbuckers 250k with single coils. And the better brand pots are CTS.

Alright, since I have humbuckers, I'll go with the 500k. Thank you.
And I'll look for CTS.

Now how can I connect (perhaps two) humbuckers to a pot. I know I need soldering tools, but which ends of the cords do I attach to which part of the/which pot?
