  2. If you have high impedance passive pickups, 250k or 500k.
    If you have low impedance active pickups, or for some reason want the tone control after the preamp, 25k or 50k.

  4. Piezo and magnetic pickups should not be combined without buffering. The impedance of the magnetic pickups will basically short out the piezo elements. You need either a dual input preamp, or two buffers.

    It's a personal preference on pot values.
