I got a Melody Maker/SL for Christmas and just finished the first round of mods to it. Very excited because it is my first time really doing some serious work on a guitar and I got it done and it works. I moved the jack from the pick guard to the lower bout like a proper Les Paul and added a second tone pot into the pick guard where the jack had been. I was planning to put p90’s in it so I replaced the old pots with Mojotone 500k vintage taper and Orange Drop caps. The neck pickup actually sounds quite good and I could live with it but the bridge pickup was really bright to begin with. With 500k pots and.022 caps it is really bright and clear and will not break up. I understand that is a problem for Strats and I assume it is similar with these too. So now begins the search for at least a new bridge pickup. I’m tickled pink about how it looks and how my circuit mods worked on the first try. Any of you guys played around with these?
