I'm thinking about doing a MJT telegib build; pretty much making my own Nash T 2HB. (My dad has a telegib that is heavily inspired by Jeff Beck's so I want to do something a little different to his). My question is what kind of pots would I use? Since there will be two humbuckers, I would assume two 500k pots but looking at the Nash it apparently uses a 250k tone pot. Any advice or insight would be greatly appreciated.

I’d recommend 500ks in both the volume and tone.

500k volume for sure, a 250k tone pot would help to keep it from being overly bright.

Thanks. I would use a .022 cap, right? Also, any idea of how I would wire it? I can't find a wiring diagram for a telegib anywhere.

Probably same as a Telecaster, just using different value pots and caps.
FWIW, I built a HSS Strat with stacked coil singles and SD 59, back in the 90s, with a master volume and tone. I just used 500k pots and a 0.022uF cap wired as per a Tele. Not excessively bright.
