Need advice and some help - B00 related

Yes, you can find stuff at tag sales. I bought a white B00 in pieces. The entire bass is painted purple with a brush as is the SKB case. I assembled it, the bass tunes to pitch with good action and a proper relief, the rod is good . Did I say it was defretted but done professionally. The preamp I alligator clipped onto my tester bass and the pre-amp I think works. Heres my question. The bass has the boomerang plate but no pots.
Can someone
A) tell me the value of the pots, I think they are 25k's
B) Does anyone have a schematic or even a picture of the wiring they could send me?
C) Does anyone know where I could buy the pots? I cant find 25k's

I THINK the paint is latex and im hoping it'll peel off. Bottom line, a nice project for 50.00 doesnt suck. My 1st tag sale purchase in 10 years.

Thanks guys.

KeBo...

The vol pot (front) is 25K ohms Linear. They were Log (Audio) but Linear is the correct taper for smooth adjustment. The treble pot (in the middle) is 1 Meg ohms with a Reverse Audio taper. The bass pot (next to the input jack) is 100K ohms Audio taper.

All are available from Ernie Ball customer service via email. About $5 each.

Schematics and related info can be found on my website under the heading "PRE-AMPS & PUPs":

Kevin,

You've got to email me a picture of the body - believe it or not, I think I know where it came from.
