I recently built a Cuban Mahogany Telecaster (see here: https://www.tdpri.com/threads/new-tele-builds-cuban-mahogany-and-guanacaste-parota.973043/) and decided to put a Tyson Tone 53 Wraptail 50's low-wind P-90 in the neck position. I also decided to wire it so as to skip the tone control in positions 3 (neck only) and 2 (neck + bridge). Like so: I expected the change to be fairly drastic, but it isn't. However, this does bring about some important changes that I don't think one can get when the neck pickup is wired to the tone circuit: (1) a bit more openness (2) a bit more touch-sensitivity (3) a bit more presence (and therefore also a bit more treble) I think "presence" really covers it all, in a way, and I'm a big fan. It's a nuance, but it's one that I really like (I've also learned that I really like "presence" controls on amps). So then I went back and wired one of my other Teles this way, and it opened the whole thing up a bit. Just more lively. For those of you who either wire the pickup(s) so that they don't interact with the tone circuit or those of you who use no-load tone pots, I wonder what your experiences are with this. How would you describe the effects?
