I'm wondering if I should swap the cts pots and BB caps in my newer c/s SG, with the gibson pots and orange drops in my 2002 M/Machine les paul.. Problem is it would lead to a complete upgrade ie) I would then want to install more authentic looking p/up rings the correct shaped inlays etc etc.. where does it end.? .. plus the L/P may more valuable unmodified ? Also even though the SG has the 'same' BB pickups I love the way it sounds as it is... may have to buy one of those RS upgrade sets.. any advice ??
i would rather have the CTS pots & BBs. but if you want to improve the tone, disconnect the caps from the middle lug on the tone pots and connect to the lower lug; it will be wired more like a real 59 and you will get a noticeable tone improvement.
