    I am
    Pretty sure I found what I was after.
    Chasing country clean to classic rock.

    ended up with Don mares.., it’s hard to chose a pickup position now, they all work and sound well, and sit in the mix just right..his wait times are fairly long now adays, but well worth the wait, it’s my 3rd dm set, but this set just seemed to work perfectly in this guitar.

    just redid the whole wiring thing because about 20 sets of pickups have been in this guitar the last year..

    Gibson style 50s wiring, first played this set up On a custom shop guitar , it works well, and my lp is set that way, I am used to tone/volume interaction,
    Used a cool old cap, the usual cts pots, crl switch.
    Saved the old stock stuff.
    Tossed the Wiring test rig for pickups, it was looking kinda ratty..

    gut shots..
    Pretty much done with this tele.
