Guys,

What's your take on this? I think I saw someone recommend 100K for tone but not sure of cap. What about volume?

Thx,

Mike

i actually run 500k volume and tone in my jerry jones with duncan lipstick pickups; yes it's bright, but the pickups have this kind of "diffuse" quality to them that keeps it from being harsh.

its very "sparkly" is the only way i can describe it.

Hey Walter, are those the stacked concentric pots? They only place I can find stacked concentric pots is from All Parts and they are super expensive.

Worth a try, I bet Jerry thought a lot about it. He passed away recently, didn't he?

i don't know (about either question); i put the 500ks in myself many years ago, and don't recall what was in there.

it didn't have the concentric thing, but it does go into series mode in the middle.

I treat lipsticks like singlecoils and use 250k pots. caps can vary, some like .022uf
