  1. Can anyone tell me the correct value of the pots and caps on a MIJ Jazz.

    All the pots are 250k. I find the best ones to use are the CTS solid shaft pots as used by Fender. The capacitor is generally a .050uF but you can use anything from .050uF up to .100uF. The higher the value of the capacitor, the more high frequencies are bled to ground when the tone pot is at it's zero position.

    Also, unless you are looking to buy new knobs, make sure the pots you get are the same as your current ones--i.e. brass or split shaft.
  4. .047mfd or .050mfd for Jazz bass.
    .1 for P bass.
