.033 or .047. Depends on the pickups.

It really can depend on the pickup. I generally will start with 500k's and a .047 cap, though the last one I did was a bit brighter 90 so I used a 500k volume and a 250k tone.

Hey John. You might want to try a .022 or maybe .033 with the 250K pots. I have a couple of import guitars with P-90's. One has the .022's and one the .033's. I think the .022 sounds good even with a 500K pot. Just my 2 cents.

Yeah, I'd go with a .022 cap for 250K tone pots. I do like how P90's sound with 500K volume and 250K Tone pots. Cool
