    I recently picked up a 2011 Road Worn Player Tele with the Tex-Mex in the bridge and Seymour Duncan 59 PAF in the neck position. The PAF seems a little muddy to my ears, so I'm trying to find a way to brighten it up without affecting the tone of the bridge pup. Volume pot is currently 375k. Any suggestions?

    Nice guitar! My partscaster started out with a loaded body from one of those. Try putting a cap between the 59's hot lead and it's lug on the switch. I'd maybe start with .047uf and work my way down. Smaller values (.033uf, .022uf, etc) will give you more of a low cut; higher values less. It works just like a coupling cap in an amp or pedal. You can also stack two or more caps in parallel to make odd values if needed.
