So, I'm thinking of replacing the pots with 1 meg pots and adding an .22 orange drop to bright up those pickups. Any thoughts?


What is in it now? What are those pups again, you just said SD which could mean a lot of things. EDIT: You said Distortions, SH-6. I'm a moron.

I used 500M pots with my SD JB and no tone control, and it sounds perfect. I'm not sure if 1M is going to be ideal for a humbucker, it would probably be farrrrrrr too bright.

I had a Hi Flyer 20-some years ago. It looked cool, but had horrible tuning and intonation issues. Of course, I was also a clueless teenager who had no idea how to properly set up a guitar. I paid $50 for it and sold it for $200 when KC started playing one on TV. The necks on those are pretty nice.

So.. update. It's here in PR with me, and I finally played it on my amps, and it is NOT muddy.

In fact, it sounds quite perfect.

Now onto my other project, a non-functioning Squier tele I rescued from the classifieds.
