    im currently putting together my own bass. and I'm ready to put in all the electronics. I am installing Aero instrument Jazz p'ups with an aguilar active on board preamp. Im comfortable with doing the wiring myself, however, im lost as to what type of control pots to get. I cant seem to find a definitive source on it. im thinking 25ks, but im looking for some reassurance.

    thanks

    The Aguilar comes w/the 2, 25K pots that are required for the pre-amp. All other controls are for the pick ups. If the pickups are passive single coil, you'll need 250K pots. If they're hum-cancelling or stacked, they'll need 500K pots.
