im not sure if this is possible so I was hoping some of the electronics gurus could help a noob out. Is it possible to wire a humbucker and single coil up to a 500k pot? I know singles generally prefer 250k pots, and I'd like to retain that single coil feel - so is there a way this can be done? I don't use tone pots so I'd like to avoid installing one where possible. Could I wire some kind of resistor into the single coil to trick it into 'seeing' a 250 pot? The pot I'm using is a 500a push/pull as I'm hoping to be able to tap the humbucker as well. Any suggestions will be appreciated, and paid in beer*.
*sorry there is no beer left.
I do it all the time. It makes the single coil a little brighter which works for me and it helps it balance better with the humbucker. If you are running a JB or other vintage style pickup then run a 250 for all of them, as they were originally designed to be used with 250k pots
