Refurbished a tele with some Seymour Duncan Quarter Pound pickups in it.
They sounded bloody awful with the stock electrics, 250k pots just do not work with these pickups. I didn’t want to go all the way to 500k and risk introducing any brittleness, so I tested my pots looking for a couple on the low side. Thanks to Göldo’s shitty quality control I happen to have several undercooked 500k pots, and a 440k worked out perfectly here.
I’m not fussed about the neck, it’s a little too dark for my tastes, although it does take gain very well. The bridge is great however, it’s a beast that can hold its own with many humbuckers in terms of output, and still has plenty of character despite its massive 17kΩ overwind.
