Hope I am in the right area, please forgive me if I am not.

I have an Aria ES 335 made in Korea knock off (80's / 90's) which I stupidly broke a volume pot shaft getting the knob off tonight. Typical 335 config,
2 tone controls, 2 volumes, 2 HB pick ups. Well, I think they are HM. They are certainly that size but the screw pole pieces are in the middle. I took them out and without removing the steel cover looks like a double coil.

I can replace it easily enough but my problem is there appears to be no ohm value on the pot? It's one of those small dime size pots like you get in the Epiphones. Would anyone know or care to guess what size it would be so I can order another?

Many thanks in advance

I'd use this as an opportunity to do a little tweaking.....pots like that are cheap so maybe order a few different values (250, 300 and 500 are all common). The volume pot is a direct influence on the whole pickup's response from bass to highest treble, so changing the value (greater value increases resonant peak) can change the tone.

500K for humbuckers, 250K for single coils

If you have a multimeter you can measure the other volume pot.
