    Default HSH Strat Component Question

    Hello,

    I am about to install the following configuration in my Fender Strat:
    Neck: Little 59 SL-59 for Strat
    Middle: Fender Hot Noiseless
    Bridge: Little 59 SL-59 for Strat
    5 position with Auto Splits.

    My Question is what would be the optimimum Pot's (Volume and 2xTone) and Capacitors to use?

    I have seen many references to 500K Pots for Humbuckers and in the Wiring Diagram in the support section, 250K Pots are used.
    Also, The Capacitor of a 022 is shown, but for Humbuckers, 047 is often shown.

    Many Thanks in Advance!
    Kevin

    The Lil, Jr and Rails (with exception of maybe hotrails) are designed to be used with 250K pots.

    As for caps, both values are ok, someone else might be better suited at answering specifically and why.

    Is it not the glory of the people of America that, whilst they have paid a decent regard to the opinions of former times and other nations, they have not suffered a blind veneration for antiquity, for custom, or for names, to overrule the suggestions of their own good sense, the knowledge of their own situation, and the lessons of their own experience?" - James Madison - Federalist #14
