      Comments about Gibson 300kOhm Potentiometer Linear Taper/Long Shaft:

      I use these pots in in the neck pickup circuit of my Les Paul (volume only), and they give me greater tonal variety across the instrument. The bridge pickup runs 500k and sounds bright, the neck pickup runs 300k and the annoying sizzle is magically gone, allowing decent jazz tones. I also use one on my Gibson Hawks (single volume and tone), and run a treble-y pickup in the bridge position (a ceramic Dirty Fingers from the 70's). The icky ceramic screech is toned down to that of a regular humbucker (like a 490r), and the neck pick up is now smooth and rich, free from sizzle. Gets me a lot closer to full-bodied humbucker tone ala early Cream, Dickie Betts, etc.
