I've replaced both tone pots on my Gibson SG and finally settled on a 1Megohm pot for the neck humbucker (stock Gibson) and a 500K for the Miracle Man (bridge).

A lower rating can fatten the top end up a bit, while a higher rating makes the pickup a bit brighter.
Current BKPs: Miracle Man, Nailbomb, Juggernaut, VHII
Past BKPS: Holy Diver, Trilogy Suite, Sinner, Black Dog

I did the same thing with my Tele neck humbucker that was SO dull - apparently those Wide Range 'buckers were designed to be used with 1M pots and now it sounds great.
