    I have a bass that I want to change the pots and caps in. It's an Italia bass that's pretty cool but has lousy electronics. I'd like to use some Bourn pots and I have some Bumblebee's, Vitamin Q's and a few Black beauties.
    What pots? 250 or 500? What spec for caps 22 or 47? The pickups are 4 lipstick
    pickups, 1 for each string. I assume that they are wired as 1.

    Thanks in advance!
  2. It's highly a personal choice.

    500K pots are hotter/brighter than 250K.
    0.047uF cuts more treble than 0.022uF.

    I like 500K pots and 0.047uF caps personally.
