bass pickup and electronic question

i'm doing work on a friend's bass and one of the pots is basically trashed but the base of it is smaller than most pots that i've seen in guitars, as well there is no resistance rating on it so i'm clueless of what resistance to replace it with. it's a peavey rj IV bass with active pickups. is there a specific rating to be used on a bass with active pickups or can any pot do?

Re: bass pickup and electronic question

check the wiring diagrams on the ibanez site for their active bass's, active guitar pups use 25k instead of 500k i geuss it would be the same with basses, youre local dealer should be able to order an emg 25k pot (the're the smaller ones too).
