    Just acquired an Epihpone EB-3 and the volume pots have very little taper when blending with each other, unlike my Gibson SG bass. So I'm thinking I might change the Volume pots. Hoping someone on the forum has done this mod and can chime in. I'm looking at 500k Audio taper pots, either CTS or Alpha. My question is do I need long shaft or regular?

    I have the same issue. I find that it also changes the tone somewhat. I mostly leave them wide open just for the tone reason.
