I just finished my Warmoth alder body, maple neck guitar. It has an original floyd tremelo, a Duncan EVH bridge, and a Dimarzio Virtual Vintage blues in the neck. Volume and toggle only. No tone control. I understand that the tremelo and maple neck might have a tendency to make the guitar bright, but this guitar is absurdly bright. Both pickups pickup every hand movement on the strings. To make sure it wasn't the bridge, I muted the strings to keep bridge from causing the high-end. Yet sliding my left hand up and down the neck almost overpowers the notes. Plus, it's doing with with both pickups, even the somewhat darker neck pickup. Almost makes me think something is not wired correctly, although with 1 vol pot, how could I have done it wrong. Could having too much excess wire cause a problem? Should I put in the tone pot afterall? Could i have a wiring problem between the two pickups that is causing the vol pot to behave like it's a 1 Meg pot? I refuse to blame it on the wood and bridge.
