So i've had this bass for a year now and well, i haven't really played it. But when i picked it up and plugged it, i noticed the bridge pickup volume pot is really scratchy so i would need to replace it. But I had the idea back in college to re-wire it so it's just volume-tone-Kill just like the nikki sixx signature II. I already have wiring diagrams. Will the tone be greatly affected if i change the 500k tone stock pot from epiphone to a 250k? Not that i really care, but it's good to know if it does or not. She's a beauty to play but i need something new and different from all my other basses.
