1983 Telecaster Overhaul


Hey Fellas!

Going to be completely rewiring my 1983 Tele in the next few weeks. Will post pics when I get in to it. I was looking for some opinions on this as this will be my first time wiring a guitar (Have wired other things and I can lay down a nice solder). I have Purchased a "Pearly Gates" Humbucker for the Bridge Position and a SD Antiquity 59' Tele pickup for the neck. I thought that would be a nice blend. I think I may go with a simply 3 way selector and volume & tone and not split the humbucker since this is my first time. A few questions I have are below. any help would be appreciated.

Pots? 500k or 250k?

How would you wire this rig? (Not looking for diagrams just overall functions)
