    Just saw three vintage Centralab 500k C2 pots on reverb. One reads 553, second 582 and third a 629 reading.
    Would those higher values open humbucker sound even more?
    Most regular CTS and Alphas reads a little bellow and a little above 500k range.

    Heard about CTS 550´s, but never tried or thought they should be more difference.

    School me on that. Thanks.

    This is the chart of typical pickup performance/response with vol pot K reading.
