I think that guy lives in VA. Frank at Atlanta Vintage guitars gave me
his number once. Lindy told me about a mod he does to Strats that
involves that last, essentially useless, tone control on a Strat and
replacing it with a 1 meg ohm pot. The pot is placed (electrically)
between the neck and bridge pickups. When you turn to pot off (zero
resistance), it effectively allows both outer pickups on, giving you
this Tele kind of tone. Turn the pot to max (1 meg) and the other
pickup is effectively shut off due to the resistance and the normal
pickup plays alone (depending on whether the selector switch is up or
down). I tried it and it was a real cool sound, especially in clean
modes.
Give it a try!

The pots Lindy sells are modified so that extreme counterclockwise
rotation turns the pot off completely. Infinite resistance.
That way the mod can be taken ‘out of circuit’.

Buy the Book!

I cleaned up my tab for Sonny Boy's Help Me and made it into a short book. There's a Kindle version for 99 cents, and if you buy the paperback you get the Kindle free.

Playing "Help-Me" In the Style of Sonny Boy Williamson II: A step by step, note for note analysis of some of Sonny Boy's Signature Riffs

I also write Science Fiction, so you can sample some of my best stories. Also available in Kindle format.

I began collecting data about the microphones used by blue harp players before there was an internet. I began organizing it into JT30.com in the late 1990s. I accumulated more stuff than I remember. This is some of it.
