Pots used in the Jem 7V?

I'm converting my Ibanez RG350 into a lil Steve Vai guitar. Have already routed the space for the third pick up and installed a Floyd Rose, and the Evos are on the way. I just need to know what type of pots are used in the Jem, 500k or 1000k?

I was going to use the DiMarzio push/pull tapers, but I hear the Bourn tapers are superior. A friend actually said the Dimarzios are easy to screw up as there is plastic right next to the solder spot, and if melted you probably wouldn't be able to pull it out any longer.

But the Bourns don't come in 1000k, only 250k and 500k.

Any advice is appreciated.

Hello, I'm in the same boat ,though I've started with a good deal on a vine of life neck. Any one know the model # for the JEM's 5 way switch ? I started with the bar set high! LOL! My take on the Floral Pattern. But I'm actually pleased....so far.......
