I have a '52 Hotrod Telecaster. The electronics were replaced, before I got it, with 250k pots and the bridge pickup was replaced with a Don Mare El Black Crowe pickup (a slightly hotter "Broadcaster style" pickup). Neck pup is the stock SD mini-bucker. I love the tone of this guitar, but I noticed that when I play it live and I switch to any of my other Telecasters, all my other guitars are significantly brighter on my amp (Vox style amps). Actually, the Bright switch is about right.....But I only have a bright switch on one amp, my other (main amp) doesn't have this. So, if I change guitars in the middle of a set or song, I'd have adjust my treble & cut (depending on which way I swap). If my 52 HR was just a little darker, I wouldn't mind..But it's considerably darker. Would larger value volume/tone pots make it brighter (500k)? Or what about bypassing the tone pot all together to see if that helps any? Any suggestions? I'd like to make it close to my other Tele's so I can just grab it and go. I know I'm going to get some people tell me "it's good to have different sounding guitars", but this doesn't work well in a live setting if you break a in the middle of a song and need a quick guitar swap. It doesn't work if you have to run back to the amp and adjust the settings too, if your amp is even accessible - some venue's, it sits off stage.
