Is it heresy for me to replace the pots on my ’69 Tele with 250k models? With the stock 1M pots, the 6.0K bridge pickup is often too shrill for my taste. But when I turn the tone knob down to 250K resistance and clip a 270K resistor across the volume pot to mimic a 250K pot, I really like the sound of the guitar. The guitar is what I would call a "player's grade" instrument; it was refinished in clear lacquer at some point in the past, but the electronics are completely stock. Am I nuts?
