Does Vigier typically use 250K pots?  I've got two Excalibur originals, a thirteen and GV Rock and the Excaliburs sound much more full vs the other two.  I am wondering if the Excals have 500k pots and the others have 250k.  I couldn't see any values when I've looked for them on the back of the pots. I had my tech change out the GV rock pickups, awhile ago before I thought of the pot values, and they still sound somewhat thin and the thirteens amber humbuckers sound close to single coils to me, kind of like the GV rocks did before I took them out.

I just tested the potentiometers in my Expert Classic Rock (serial #150284 with Amber pickups) and this is the reading I got.  Looks like 1 Meg, best I can tell.

Not that it matters in my guitar.  Sound is excellent.
