    I have just left my high-tech recording studio. (Amp on the kitchen table and my digital camera sitting next to it capturing sound files!).

    Here are the links:

    The neck pickup is recorded with the treble at 3 and the bridge is set at 10.

    They are brite and the twang is the thang........

    Can't help thinking that with some minis in I could get a sound like Ronnie Wood's Firebird. Check out the Stones album "Stripped". If you go to amazon.com and listen to the sample of "Dead Flowers" you can hear it. Bell-like or what?

    Johnny Winter also sounds pretty good with his too - "Muddy Waters Live" features him extensively.

    Thanks for your input.

    cool. might have to change the pots in there too, if you go from singles to humbuckers. 500k for hummers , 250 for singles etc, or there abouts is usually the norm, but not set in stone. each to his own.

    My SG Deluxe (with mini's) has a 300K volume and a 500K tone pot.

    I wondered what the pots in the guitar where at the moment. Couldn't decipher the hieroglyphics on the back of them "1377136" and "70 987"

    Anyhow I put a meter on them and the Vol pot is 430k and the Tone is 606k - nominally 500 I suppose.

    If they are singles (must be surely - only one pole in the screwdriver test) then maybe 250k pots might warm them up a bit?

    pots were made in Sept '71 (36th week of 1971).So that pretty much proves that it is a '72 and that the pots are original.The #'s should start out with a 500 or a 250 depending on what they are.Yours should be 500k.The number is probably obscured by solder.
