    So hey, I was wondering about the wiring for my PJ. Right now its in the process of being wired up as 2 stacked Volume/Tones and one 3 way switch selector. I had originally bought two 500k concentric pots and two .047 orange drop caps for the tone.

    I was aiming for a punchy tone with a medium amount of brightness, but not overly trebly. I also wanted the tone knobs to work fairly decently...not to roll off too much, nor being unable to roll off enough.

    My reading lead me to 500k pots and .047 caps. Would you say I selected correctly?

    It doesn't make much difference. Pot values have a subtle effect.
