Just trying to even out a project guitar that has a weird sound. It's very thin sounding double fat alder body strat. Maple neck, maple board, Floyd Rose, 500k pots.
I swear it sounds like a banjo unplugged. The mids are pretty scooped. When plugged in, there a strong bass range but is not fat at all so its more like a "thud" rather than a "wooom". When I try to compensate by turning up the mids on the amp, the highs get very shrill. Turn up the bass and it ends up being boomy instead of fat.
I'll pop in 250k pots but I'm sure that will only slightly help. Any SD pup cure or is this strat for firewood???
