Really ? Hmmm ... The volume pot is likely a 500k, but the tone a 350k. What if you went 500k for tone too ? Dunno, just asking ... But at the price a Chinese (Guitar Madness) P94 goes for, it's a no brainer. You don't have to spend much on this. I compared side by side a Gibson P94 and a Guitar Madness P94, and I liked the GM better, sold the Gibson.
