I have an ls80 love rock with cts tvt potts fitted on both volume and tone
control but i can't seem to roll off enough high end as i would like with the
tone potts. Would changing them to something lesser than 500k solve
the problem.The guitar hasn't got the original pickups in but apart from this
its got a sound i just love, so i don't want to alter the sound when every things on 10 "it doesn't women up enough".
anyone help

If you're not rolling off enough highs then you need to raise the value of the capacitor on the tone controls. Do you know what values you have at the moment?

That's actually pretty standard for humbuckers.

I'd try .047 (common on single coils) and .033 (halfway in between) next.

I've always found Orange Drops to sound kind of "shrill". Try some decent PIOs, it solved my dilemma.
