I'm debating re-wiring my jazz bass into a pretty diverse system using split coil humcancelling pickups. I know what I want, but I don't know what the different terms and values of tone, volume pots, tone capacitors, etc, actually mean. If someone could shine some light on these questions that would be very much appreciated. 1) what is the difference between linear and audio taper pots? 2) is the answer for number 1, the same for tone and volume pots? 3) what's the difference in tone/volume between a 500k TONE pot from a 250k TONE pot? 4) what's the difference in tone/volume between a 500k VOLUME pot from a 250k VOLUME pot? 5) if I were to chose say 500k TONE pots, is it advisable to also go with 500k VOLUME pots? 6) what is the difference in tone/volume between 0.47 mf capacitors and 1 mf capacitors? 7) if I had the possibility to wire each split coil pickup with independent series/parallel switches, is there an added advantage to include an additional series/parrallel switch to switch the wiring configuration between the two pickups? 8) is there a difference in signal quality between a Volume-Volume setup and a Volume-Blend setup? I think that's all for now, but I'm sure more questions will come up. Thanks!
