Because of a nagging hum on my defretted Squier DJAV (sans active preamp) I will be replacing ALL my passive electronics--including pickups. Because of the original cheap active electronics it has factory shielding paint in the cavities. I already sent away for a Bourns 250k MN taper, center detente blend pot & a Switcraft barrel output jack. What's left to order are the 250k volume & 250k tone pots. Before sending away, I want to confirm that the Volume control requires Linear taper, & the Treble attenuation requires Audio taper pots right?. Interestingly, I came across a "no load" 250k Fender Strat pot that was supposed to be used either for volume or tone. I don't quite understand that.
