In that thread, the use of small audio signal transformers for this purpose is discussed- wiring only one-half of the transformer gets you an inductor. There is some calculation of values therein as well.
Not sure what you want to achieve here, but my limited understanding of this concept is that the inductor does not replace the cap in the tone circuit, it is used in conjunction with a cap to give a "notch" response. The inductor's value will depend on the value of the other components (pot and cap).

Thanks Newey! I've used a Bill Lawrence inductor without a cap so far in my bass. As you dial down you get less mids without really cutting them until near the low end of the knob it sounds thin like the way a solidbody sounds acoustically.

That's interesting Yew. Do you think it's worth seekeing out a lower value than the common 1-1,5H? I'm digging the Qtuner-like fidelity I get as I turn down the control but I wish I could go "further" before losing lows.
