TAKMAN 470k Resistor


I use the 470k Resistor for a little mod I was informed about by Tim McNelly. If you have a HS configuration Telecaster, it's often a compromise on whether you use 500k pots to suit the humbucker best but end up with an overly bright single coil, or 250k and have a great single coil sound but a dark humbucker sound. So with this, you'd use 500k pots in both positions, but solder this 470k resistor between the single coil pickup tab on the blade switch to ground. This means the bridge pickup single coil sees 250k rated pot. Zero compromise. I've wired a lot of these for customers as custom orders on harnesses and the response has been great from them. I thought it would be helpful to offer these individually for those comfortable wiring guitar components, so they can mod away!

Here is a copy of the McNelly wiring diagram for the HS 470k Tele resistor mod.
