Re: Is your Historic LP wired correctly? (survey)
I've been experimenting with both wiring styles. I find that the 50's style adds brightness to the pickups. I ran across a frequency plot that verified this. Modern wiring renders a relatively flat frequency response whereas 50's wiring has a peak around 4K.
I like this on my neck pickup as the added "sparkle" helps. On the bridge it seems to make it too bright and cutting, although I'm still experimenting. I can see how this will vary from guitar to guitar, pickup to pickup and player to player. I think it's a "try and see" kind of thing.
What I really like with 50's wiring is how the highs are retained as I turn the volume down. When I'm wired modern I get mud as I roll the volume off.
For those of you running with modern wiring, do you use treble bleed circuits and if so, how do you like them?
