hello all. i've got a friend that just bought an American Performer Tele. he's finding the neck pickup too dark for his tastes. the only way i know around this is to take the neck pickup off the tone pot, and eq the amp so the neck pickup sounds good, then use the tone control to darken the bridge pickup accordingly. i am not real familiar with this model, though. what are your experiences, and if similar, how did you solve the problem?
