    Does anyone know what pots are on the Hofner 500/1 500k or 250k? I'm customising my Epi Viola and Hofnerising it. Changing the PU's to some mini humbuckers with higher DC resistance than origonal PU's. I'd also like to change the pots at the same time but not sure which ones?

    I think the usual thinking is 500k's for humbuckers, 250k for single coils, but i'm wondering if 500k's would be too bright for that Hofner tone?

    Any Hofner owners out there?
