OK! Like I said that never occurred to me. And I have no idea whether the current switch is messing up the sound. Nothing to compare it to. But since I don't use the stock bridge pup at all (it sounds truly awful) I'm now considering bypassing the switch entirely and wiring the neck pup directly to the tone circuit. Dunno...
In the future though I will change the bridge pup too. Thinking about this one
. When I do that I will mod the controls and circuitry completely. I would like to have a tone knob for each pup and a "blend" knob for mixing the pups as I please. Anyone has an idea how complicated such a mod would be?
