I'm basically putting together a new guitar with an old body.

I got a combination of Seymour Duncan Hot Rails and Cool Rails and now I'm figuring out the potentiometers. (1 of them has to be push/pull Wink | ;) ).
The wiring scheme says 250 Ohm, so I got that (though I don't know what the difference 250 vs 500 actually does), but there is also a difference between a logarithmic ("audio") and a linear potentiometer. I read you should use the logarithmic ones since they don't "cut-off" at the end. Is that both for volume and tone (I need 1 volume and 2 tones) ?

Any other advice I should take in account for the potentiometers, eg how do you know what knobs will fit on those meters?
Any advice on the switch itself (5 way switch)?

thanks Smile | :)
