Hi guys,

I was wondering what kind of potis are in Evo?? Can anyone name the brand and the resistance? Also the toggle switch, if it´s any specific. Would be nice :).

hmm, DiMarzio doesn´t seem to sell 1000k pots. Also, I found this here, it says they are 500k pots, so which one is right?

well....
its pretty standard 500 for humbuckers and 250 for strats....

i'm CERTAIN the JEMs that are made have 500k pots....

I'm 99% sure Vai has 1meg in his guitars... i read it a few places here (not sure where) and i think another place or two

I think i also confirmed the 1 meg pot thing with DiMarzio when i was speaking to Jeremy at NAMM... i dont recall exactly but i know for sure we were talking about pots because i didn't know til recently they made them.

I have N-Tune tuners installed in all my guitars and they make it in two versions 500 for LP's/Humbuckers and 250 for singlecoil/strats

I do want to replace all my pots with new good dimarzios... however... i dont know or think i'll do a 1meg... i dont think it makes a difference to me-
also the capacitor i bet would make a bigger difference... however i'd be suprised if Steve even knows what type of capacitor it is... or how to find another one....

i agree with you ,it is the reason i told you the way you did discover it,'cause it is my idea too.

The reason i asked it to you is i did read it too and i m pretty sure he uses 1meg dimarzio with 560pf cap.

Maybe he use the treble bleed circuit (cap+resistor)'cause 1 meg pot haven't got a natural gradual range when you turn off the volume in distortion mode,10 distortion 8/9 already clean.

Also there is more gain in 1 meg pots.

well, so this says he´s using 500 k pots. Now this is getting pretty confusing :). Any of the mods may know precisely?!
