Right guys, im good for everything i nead, but ive got a slight problem.


Telecaster with humbucker in neck, single in bridge.

What potentiometer do i need; 250k or 500k?

Ta much,

Tobias ^^

500k

or if you want to spend the extra cash go for the meg pots.

but 500k is what you need / want.

No, it's actually preference.

Traditionally, humbuckers use 500k and single coils use 250k. The higher the value, the brighter the sound. 1meg (1000k) shouldn't cost any more...

I'd go with 500K/500K myself (and I actually plan to when I make a tele like what you're talking about), but like Øttər said, it's preference.

would a 500k make the bridge single sound different though?. im just looking for a standard tele setup and replacing the neck with a humbuckr, would i need 2 tones???

Two tones would give you a more original set up, though not entirely since the standard is 250K/250K I believe. The 500K would make the bridge brighter since there's less resistance. I figure with the 500K/500K, it'll be nice and bright like it should be, but if you want it less bright, just turn the tone down. You can easily fit another pot in there, so two tone's isn't impossible. You could go with the 500K vol/250K tone so it's a bit brighter than 250K/250K, but not as bright as 500K/500K.
