Hello! I just took delivery of a used Squier Cabronita earlier this week. While looking for one at a reasonable price, I naturally searched every available article and forum. I’d planned on needing a new bridge, nut and maybe upgrading the electronics. As for the bridge and nut, they are perfectly acceptable on this guitar. The bridge lines up perfectly with the pickup poles and the strings are well-centered on the neck. The jug is well-cut, too and I only lightly filed the slots to make sure they’re smooth. All in all, I’m very impressed with the fit and finish on this $300 guitar, especially considering I was prepared to do a little work to it. The only thing I would even slightly criticize is the thick, plastic-y finish, but that’s to be expected and not a knock on the quality of the instrument. I did, however, purchase the guitar used and the only issue is that the neck pickup seems to have been poorly adjusted at some point. It is tilted in its pocket and the head of the height adjust screw on the bass side of the neck pickup is stripped. I have new screws on order, so it won’t be an big deal once I get them in; I already got the stripped screw out and the pickup is jammed in its current position. To finally get to my question: once I am able to thoroughly adjust my pickups, how many of you that own these guitars have left in the stock 250k ohm volume pot. Given the good quality of the instrument flying in the face of “internet wisdom”, could it be that the stock pot is perfectly serviceable. I know that people like to use the traditionally more acceptable 500k for humbuckers, but then it seems there are complaints about the taper. Also, people put in concentric pots to have both volume and tone, but would that have you back to putting more load on the treble freqs anyway with two pots in the wiring? So could it be that the decision for a single 250k pot was a conscious decision to keep the guitar from being too bright while also keeping an even taper throughout the volume control’s range? Really, this question is because I have too much time while waiting for those screws and I’ve exhausted my internet searching. If you just skipped to the end: do you believe that the changing to a single 500k pot for the volume control is mandatory for getting the most out of these Fideli’trons or is there a valid argument for keeping the 250k? Long winded, I know, but thanks in advance for any thoughts you’d like to share!
