I saved this quote (can't remember where from) and I'm interested in learning if anyone else has changed the pots for different values?
Any thoughts?...change the pots to 250K and suddenly your Dano/Silvertone will produce lots of balanced mids as well as highs.
The truth is ... its not the pickups after all......it was the top mounted bridge on masonite making a 'banjo' ringing effect. I have many originals from '56 to '63. The vintage wiring configuration of 100K+1000K + .1 capacitors actually choke the tone of these simple but beautiful pickups.
