Schaller DOUBLE J wiring/cap question

    User received the Shcaller double j (for neck position) and I’m gonna pair it with a Dimarzio Model J bridge pup.
    Since I’m very new to wiring up pickups (still have my cherry), I need a little help.
    Setup: Vol-Vol-Tone

    1 - what kind of caps should I use (going with 500k pots)
    2 – the double j has 8 leads, for now I just want to set it up as a straight humbucker, right to the vol pot.

    Only one cap needed in the circuit. Order both a .047uf and a .022uf (caps are inexpensive) and try each to see which you like.

    What’s the difference sound wise ?
