I love my teles but I do not give much for the way they're usually wired. One tone knob for both pickups is a bad idea since the neck pu needs the tone knob to be full on to clear up, and the bridge pu needs the tone knob to be really backed down to tame the treble overload in these guitars. Am I the only one doing this mod? I call it the antimud mod. It's a really easy mod. You just cut the wire that goes from the tone pot to the volume pot. And solder it back so it goes from the tone pot to the lug for bridge lead input on the toggle switch. That's it! You’ll get a neck pickup with full on tone and a bridge pickup with a dedicated tone pot. I use it on both my teles.
