    Are 250k pots generally the value pots that are used with Jazz Bass pickups, and single coil Bass pickups in general?

    yes. you can use 500k if you want, it'll let more of the natural highs through.

    Yeah, I know the difference between 250k and 500k pots from playing/modding guitars for a while, but I was just wondering if 250k was the default value for Jazz Bass pickups, like what Fender puts in their guitars etc.
