Very valuable information here!! Just wondering, but do Epis use short and long shaft or just the cheepos. I recently got an Epi Les Paul, and I figured that I could change the pots right away. would the tone be better?
One overall thing. Whatever the pot type, buy the right tool (like a socket wrench with a built-in handle) to do it up. I hate seeing people trying to fit these with a pair of pliers. I know that at some point they are going to slip and wreck a beautiful finish.
The 500K or 550k will add more clarity and reduce muddiness, the 300k will sound a little more compressed with less highs. The tapers will also vary a little from pot to pot, some smoother than others.Thanks!
I have heard good and bad things about changing the volume from 300k to 500k, what can you expect if you do change them?
just something i recently found,,i changed the stock pots on my 2011 lespaul with duncan jb in bridge and jazz in neck to a 50's wiring kit i bought online,,which has cts 500k pots and luxe capacitors..I am thinking about changing the 300k volume pots on my 2012 Classic Custom, would i need the longer or shorter ones?
Bit of a noob at this.
