I had posted a thread about id ing the mini pots in my 06 csx strat. It turned out that they were indeed 500k. Big surprise I know but even though I ordered full size 250k cts pots and .022 caps from ebay, I am not going to rush to put them in. I put the jumper on the switch for bridge pickup tone control and can make all three more than dark enough. So, my questions are: has anyone else found this to be the case and loved what they heard with the 500k pots? And can anyone tell me it is truly worth the hassle or how much darker the 62z will sound with the 250k pots. Also must say that the 62z live up to all the hype. This guit fiddle never sounded so sweet.
