Re: NGD: New custom STRAT
got my Texas Specials all hooked up, pots and capacitor swapped out, Fender American 5-way. It sounds pretty damn close to SRV's tone. Their is a sound inherent to these pups that I cannot describe but you know it as soon as you hear it. Also, the stock electronics really are crap. I found a genuine CTS 250K tone pot for the middle pu, a no name 500K pot for the neck, and the same no name for the volume. The 5-way looked like something that came out of a cracker jack box. Nice quality control Fender lol. But after replacing with all genuine fender stuff with the correct values its amazing the difference.
