I just finished my own experiment with 250K pots in my Thinskin Jazzmaster.
You're right, AW - it's definitely got a fat-sounding Tele thing going on, now.
I love this new setup. The neck pickup is warm and clear, the bridge pickup sounds like a meaty Telecaster, and the 2-pickups together have that piano-like ring that the Jazzy is so good with. I plugged into my Mission 5E3 after I got things put back together and I'm REALLY happy with the results.
I'm going to be playing this rig (250K-modded JM Thinskin -> Peterson StroboStomp Tuner -> Dano PB&J Delay -> Mission 5E3) a lot!
