As far as I know they were audio-taper pots.

Thanks Frank!

I did the math and determined the same.

My volume pots were 250k and not the 500k that folks around here seem to recommend. I'm building a spare harness for mine and used 250k audio for the volume pots and 500k audios for the tones.

Also, not that it matters that much, but the tone caps are .02 and not .022 for anyone looking for historical accuracy.

Thanks for the info! Sounds like you're going for accuracy down to .002!
