    I'm looking at replacing the electronics in my 72 Thinline. What value cap should I be looking at for the single volume control? 500K pots for both volume & tone? Thanks!

    I'm not trying to put in the same values, I'm looking to put in 500k pots which are the correct values for humbuckers. I'm just looking for suggestions on cap values.

    500k pots are only correct for humbuckers if they are only feeding one pup each ie. 2 volume 2 tone all 4 500k, your volume and tone are controlling both pups which is why they are both 250k. For example if you had one volume and 2 tones with your setup you should have 250k volume and 2 500k tone pots. Hope this helps.
