Hey this may be a dumb question, but is there a way you can wire a switch to make a guitar brighter? I built my backup with a humbucker, and it sounds a bit dark, also doesn't react with pedals as…Continue
"Yes. I was thinking that would also be a way to achieve the brighter tone that Wolfeather is looking for. Since guitar potentiometers & capacitors are passive, they can only subtract or reduce from the frequencies available.…"
"Adding a tone pot & cap will not make it brighter than it is. A 1 Meg ohm vol pot will be a bit brighter, as will no vol pot. Otherwise, use Brian's Altoids can to install an active treble boost circuit."
"Have you given thought to an external tone pot? You could throw a pot, capacitor & jacks in any kind of enclosure? I’ve had to do this for a couple of my customers who play Tom Delong volume only strats? I used a 1590a Hammond stompbox but…"
"They do have specialty tone caps for guitars, but I don’t think they’re worth 10-20 dollars for one capacitor? A capacitor with a 100/250v rating & tolerance rating of 5% or lower is really the best option. I use WIMA box capacitors…"
"I don't believe that adding a cap will help brighten the pickup. Capacitors bypass high frequencies. Using a 550K vol pot may help a bit, as will removing the vol pot completely. Have you tried lowering the bass side of the…"
