OK so I swapped out the pickups in this soloist a while back. But I found that the top end response got quite a bit subdued once switching over to Dimarzios. After breaking out the meter and checking the values of the pots. It's looking like the custom shop put a 500K in the volume, and a 250K tone pot. So after disconnecting the tone pot completely from the circuit. Everything sounds the way I was hoping for in the first place.
So while I really don't use the tone pot at all. I wouldn't mind having it functioning again. Is a 1Meg pot going to give me the top end and presence I'm getting now? Or keeping it disconnected is the only way to keep things the way they are?
BTW. Are Dimarzios normally this sensitive to pot values? The set I have in here (Air Norton - N / Air Zone - B) seems to really hate that 250K tone pot. I would think the effect of removing the pot would've be more subtle than its turning out to be.
250s are usually used on single coils, and 500s on humbuckers. A 1meg pot will be pretty close to a straight wire to the jack.
