Volume pots should be log taper, otherwise all the action is in a few degrees at the bottom end. Remeber that loudness is essentially logarithmic. Tone, it depends on the circuit. If you fit a linear one and all the effect is concentrated at one end, then go log (or antilog, which can be hard to obtain).
Knobs: Most older pots had a 1/4" dia shaft with a flat for a grubscrew. Newer ones (here, at least) have a nominal 6mm dia, splined to suit push-on knobs. You can't put a splined knob on a 1/4 shaft, but you can do the opposite, and it's all horrible and wobbly.

Good luck,
