Here's a picture of my Strat that was going to get two Firebird pickups, but I've had a tone pot put in, this guitar had only a volume wired directly to the TVJ Classic and it was too tinny and bright, and now it sounds pretty damn good, so I think I shall keep it this way for now. BTW, it started as a two TVJ Classic guitar, and with all of the wiring in there which must have had some increased capacitance the bridge TV Classic sounded fantastic...but it turned out too bright when I "hot rodded" it. Also I changed the trem block to an old vintage all steel one and I think that also made the tone brighter, I strongly suspect. Anyway, now it's got a 500k tone pot, and my tech also put a treble bleed mod on the volume, and it sounds really good. It also has a split coil and the split coil sounds really great, almost like a cross between a really chimey low output single coil and an acoustic with a pickup in it or something like that..hard to explain but a very useful tone for sure, very unique.
