I just got a CIJ Strat to replace the 54 RI I sold. It has this "Tele-like" bark to it, and a sweet brightness. At the same time it lacks some of the bass and fullness I like. I opened her up and it has unlabeled pups (my others say Fender CS or something on them). It's an early to mid 90s. The pots are pretty small and do NOT say CTS or anything. The bridge has Fender stamped saddles. I just got a killer deal on Seymour Duncan SSL-1s, and they are sitting here. Should I upgrade the pots and put in the SSL-1's? Should I put the bridge onto the tone control?
