Stock pots for 1993 S540?

Does anyone know. I'm looking to have a new volume pot put in along with new pickup wiring and I wanted to know what pots were in the guitar stock as a reference.

500K volume/tone. I'm running a bourns push/pull volume as a coil tap and a stock tone pot. I should've asked - are you going for a 100% stock restoration, or do you just need values?

^^ 500k audio taper for both tone and volume (18mm shaft height and 23mm or 24mm base diameter). BUT many of these pots will have a shaft too wide to fit through the holes in the body (i believe this is the case with both Bournes and CTS). I would avoid drilling the body to make the holes wider and simply look for a set of Asian pots.

Ty and good tips about the width.

I just wanted to know what they were to see what I had. If they were 250k I would have tried 500k.

I'd still be curious to try something higher than the 500k but idk if I will do that just yet.

I like the tone I have, it is very distinct and has a fairly dark sound.

I'd still be curious to see what something higher would be like.
