Lollar Regal WRHB

Hey guys. My new Lollar Regal is on the brown truck for delivery today and I can't wait to drop it in my '72 Telecaster Custom RI! I went through a lot trying to get the stock pup to sound less muddy, and I got it close, but not close enough. I have 1meg pots installed right now, but here's my real question.

Are you using 500k or 250k pots as Lollar recommends?

I have both, but I'd rather spend more time playing than trying to figure out which pots I like best. My gut is telling me to go with the 500k because we are dealing with a humbucker, but Jason Lollar knows a hell of a lot more about pickups than I do. Any thoughts?

I use 500K, which I thought is what Lollar recommends. I know it says you can just drop them in, but I read a post by Lollar somewhere that says he prefers to 500K pot, so that is what is in mine. I will try and find it and add a link.

Thanks for the link! I'm going to go with the 500k based on what I just read from JL. Looks like he and I use similar amps as well.

Cool! Would be interested to hear what you think I put them in my thinline and I think they are fantastic.

I've got it wired up, and I followed the instructions....

Shielded Cable: Unbraid the outside shield by picking at the braid a few strands at a time starting at the cut end and working in a straight line down one side of the cable. Expose 1/2"3/4" of the inside center lead insulation then twist the peeled back braid into one lead. The lead created from the braid is connected to ground. The insulated center conductor is the hot lead.

Things seem correct, but it just seemed weird to do that with the braid. Probably because I 'm used to wiring up Tele pups. Got a new Broadcaster pup to go with the Regal. Just need to string it up.

not weird - the Gibson 57 classics work the same way

I posted this in Tele-Tech, but I've had no response. Maybe you guys can help.

I realized I was missing the bare wire from 3-way. Solved that issue, but came across another. Individually, the pups work perfectly, but in the middle position I can control both pups simultaneously with each set of vol/tone controls. I lose the ability to have one pup louder than the other for example. Basically, they've lost their individuality.

I've checked the diagram literally 10 times against my wiring, and it looks good. Any ideas?
