I'd look at some classic schematics and consider the sound and tone each one produces.
Personally i think with single coils the Jag and Jazzys 1meg are too bright, you could 'pot hack' them with caps but if you are starting from scratch you may as well put the pots in you want.
250k is popular for single coil pups generally speaking, what cap value you install with that i'm not sure. Like i said look at some diagrams. Wink

Pretty standard stuff, bro...

250k pots with or .047 uf

500k pots with .022 uf

uf = microfarad...
