    I’m going to use a Fralin split-coil 51 Precision in a build I’m working on.

    My electronics knowledge is not deep but I have had it hammered into my head that humbuckers should use 500 k pots and single coils ,250 k pots.

    Does the fact that this is a split coil pick up mean I should us 500 K pots?

    Input is much appreciated

  2. It's a personal preference.
    500k pots are a little hotter/brighter than 250ks, but the difference is still subtle.

    Thanks. I was under the impression it was dramatic difference. I'll stick with 250K to start.
