500KΩW ? (questions about pots)

So here is the story...
I recently bought a used rg7620 that was kinda worn and rusty... So im trying to get in as good shape as possible right now and ive come to the "change the pots part".

Anyway before this guitar I had a rg1077xl (which is now sold). But looking thru my "guitar spare parts box" i found that i had the kept the original pots from it (I cant remember why i canged them cuz there were nothing wrong with them).
SO! Im thinking, Hey why dont i put these pots in my "new" rg7620 guitar?

good ida yeah?

Since Im pretty nerdy and wanted to get everything right I logged onto the ibanez.com site to look over the wiring diagrams for the rg7620 and the rg1077xl. But guess what: I COULDN`T FIND ANY POT NAMED 500KΩW?

So this is my question, what kind of pot is this? Cuz Im pretty sure it came from the rg1077xl, but i cant find any pot named like this in the ibanez parts section of their site.

Oh btw the other pot i found reads "500KΩD" This is the standard pot that is used for tone right?

The wiring diagrams volume pot says "500KΩG" so whats up with this "500KΩW"?

Please help

Re: 500KΩW ? (questions about pots)

it doesn't really matter, it's just the taper, if you install it and notice that your tone knob is suddenly a linear taper and your volume is the audio taper, just switch the pots. a 500K pot still has 500 kilo ohm resistance.
