The C (reverse log) taper pots are hard to find for everyone; not just noobs.

Just to be sure: I would need a B250k pot, right? Not a C250k one.

Correct. The letter denotes taper; A for audio (log) taper, B for linear taper, and C for reverse audio (log) taper.

And will the soldering of the wires be identical to the schematics for the 1M rev log pot? Or would I need to switch the wire connections on the linear bass pot?

Should be the same.
