So l when I picked up my guitar from the shop we replaced the corian string block with one made out of brass, much more sustain and it bought the neck pickup to life. Unfortunately the bridge pup developed a nasty bite. Changing the string block back to corian helped but, I wanted a warmer tone. I then swapped the six saddle bridge out with a three brass barrel type. It tamed the bridge pup but now the neck pup sounded like mud. So, I replaced the bridge pup with a SD Antiquity that has laid around unused since I brought it years ago... While swapping the bridge pup, I reverted back to the brass string block and 6 saddle bridge. Spent the majority of the day doing this. It paid off... The neck position sounds a lot like a Strat... I love it, the bridge pup sounds sweet, like an old tele should. I'm tired but, happy. I'll try the bridge pup that I pulled in an upcoming Esquire build.
