:)



I switched the leads coming from the pickup and sure enough, they were reversed. One would thing "black" is "ground" but hey... All good now. Sounds good.

Sometimes black is hot though :fp:

Glad it’s fixed! Does it sound different now?

Evidently! :whistle:

With that said, the guitar sounds great with the new pickup. A tad bright with the 500k pot in it, but not in particularly bad way. Might try out a 250k pot in it just to mellow it out a bit, but I'm not in any particular rush.

Okay, played with it for a bit tonight. This guitar is loud and BRIGHT. But also, bright in the sense of "I'm a primarily neck pickup player and I put 250k pots in my Jazzmaster" kind of way.

So I'll be up at my usual crack of dawn 5:30 am and changing out that pot for a 250k pot. It's nice and jangly though, I will say that. I like to jangle, I like to chime, but even I have my limits...

:whistle:

I LOVE the idea of Esquires, but every time I play one, I can't help but think, "damn, this sounds great, but if it had a neck pickup also, that would be great" :fp:

Surf 90s are REALLY bright but they dirty up in such a trashy way. If the 250k isn't enough you could try a load cap, e.g. 2nF from hot to ground.
