    Hey everyone...My conrad franken bass is almost done....but ne ways...my question is i have a 3 way pickup select, neck(cheap dearmond pickup) Both Pu and emg jazz pu....on the neck selector my tones are very hollow expecually when the tone is on 0 but It has a pretty decient slap tone when is on about 5 but thats the only good i get out of the neck...when the switch is on mid it sounds pretty good as it would unplugged but not very thick....and the jazz Pu is always too bright and not very growly until you put the tone on about 2 and turn the main volume on about 8........QUESTION.....Should i upgrade or downgrade my pots...I think they are 250k's does anyone know the suggested size for a dual pickup set up with a 3 way switch?
