    Hi,
    I have a copy of an ES-335 and I would like to know the specifications of pots and capacitors to this guitar.
    The pickups will be SD Seth Lover.
    Thank you

    Do you mean what would you suggest?

    I'd say 500K CTS pots and quality .022 caps....

    Also do a search here... Rewiring a 335-style guitar can be a pain in the rear...

    My doubt is because the old ones had 100k tone pots and 300k volume pots. Now I think is 500k on all pots.

    Long or short shaft for the pots?
    Is the cap .022 @1000V?

    For a 335 I would assume they are the short shafts. I'd go with an .022 at 400V or 600V but I'm not sure if it matters...

    I just replaced the pups, pots and caps in my 335 a few days ago. I used Duncan 59s with 500K short shaft pots and .022 tone caps. The original pots were 300K and 100K. The guitar is brighter than it was before. This is what I was going for and I really like it. I also installed .001 treble bleed caps but, that's another story.

    Who makes a high quality Pickup selector switch for the 335 that is quiet?

    How about all 250K pots? I have an Artcore and 4 CTS 250K pots I want to use up.
