I got 250's, just wondering? School me please.
500k are brighter.
Thank you so much for that video. The whole series that follows it is fantastic! David Collins is a very smart guy and excellently experienced Luthier and technician! On top of all that, he's a really nice guy who graciously spent some time on the phone with me, answering questions a couple times. No snobbiness! No attitude!
One's 250,000 louder.
Seriously though, LutherBurger's post has this covered.
HISTORICAL ANALOGY -- Part of the reason behind the clarity of the original Fender/Seth Lover WRHB pickups were the 1Meg VOL and TONE pots that they came with, both installed and the dealer-installation kits.
Excerpt from Stew Mac...
"500K pots are standard controls for humbuckers, and 250Ks are usually used for single-coil pickups. A 250K gives a slightly warmer tone than a 500K, and bleeds off (attenuates) some of the high frequencies to ground."
