    25k or 500k would be the preference, depending on whether or not there is an active/passive switch.

    thank you sir,

    say if in the future i were to add a passive split coil precision pickup and a subsequent volume pot, that would also have to be 25k, yes?

    and if i added a passive/active switch i would have to replace both volumes to 500k, right?

    No, you would use 500k pots, before the preamp's input.
