    I'm in the planning stages of making my next partocaster. I'm planning on a Telecaster with a neck humbucker. I'll only have one vol, one tone and the selector. The question arose... To handle having a humbucker and single bridge what are you guys using for pots and caps? I'm after a darker tone in the guitar (it'll be used primarily for jazz). I'm thinking 250k pots and a 0.050 uf cap? Although a 0.1 uf cap would yield a darker tone I'm thinking because of the neck humbuker I should use a 0.05 uf cap. I am not a guy who likes much bright twang in his Tele so I don't need the bridge to be bright. Let me know if my thoughts are astray.

    Thanks!
