I've run out of 500k pots, and I need to fix this guitar... what happens if I use a 1 Meg pot for the tone control? How would it affect the sound?
BTW, my 1967 MIJ Emperador 335 copy came with these pots... a 500k pot for volume, a 1 Meg pot for tone w/ a .22 cap. Two years ago I thougth it sounded pretty good with the original Gotoh p'ups... which measured 11.3k at the neck and 11.8k at the bridge. Very warm and smooth. I took'em off because they were going into uncontrollable feedback even with low gain... it was the covers; I've found that out just recently!
