Took a few nights of slow, careful work. I was a bit nervous to scratch up the finish, way more timid than any work I've done on my Tele haha. Tele cavities are a pain. My reasons for ripping out the PCB: Modern wiring gets dark too quickly Tones weren't doing much and then getting too muddy Tapers were a bit too abrupt, but don't want to go full 30%, cause my fuzz faces still like a drop off. Pots measured all over the 500k tolerance map, wanted to bring it into a more focused spec. Feel was a bit too stiff. Output jack didn't have a nice 'clack' like a decent Switchcraft does. Main reason: I like fiddling around and building things. So I got Dimarzio everything (right spec, cheap for me cause my job). Mapped out a cardboard template and used what I had lying around wire wise. I really like that thick stranded wire, it's easy to work and doesn't melt easy. The results: Everything is better as per the above concerns, but small things are also better: Middle position is chimier and chirpier Bridge sounds more vocal and balanced Neck is a touch more open. Tones have more shades to play with and full rolloff isn't as muddy (despite the same value 22nf caps) Totally didn't wire the bridge properly first time round, damn pcb changes. But that's a well documented issue so was a quick fix. Very happy. I love this guitar so much.
