    Check out RS Guitarworks site...or contact Jonesy for ToneMojo. The typical config RS is running are 500K pots with a .022 cap for the bridge and a .015 for the neck.

    The Epi LP Custom is a dark sounding guitar...I don't think you'd be very happy with 300k pots in that....

    my flying v 67 reissue has 300 volumes and 100 tone. i swapped it for a 500 tone pot the day i changed the bridge pickup and the neck now sounds great as opposed to the muddiness it used to have.
    i assume gibson used this 100 pot to compensate for the harsh sounding bridge pickup 500t. but that sacrifices the tone of the neck and really a pot can't make a bad choice of a pickup sound good!

    Great info here for those of us with 100k pots. In terms of preserving the guitar I guess I'm best off taking out the whole harness and swapping in a new one so it could be restored in future?
