The bridge position Seymour Duncan JB in my Fender Kurt Cobain Mustang is dark, muddy, undefined and compressed. I cannot currently get a satisfactory bright, cutting, crunchy overrdriven sound from this PUP. It sounds as if the tone control is rolled down, even though it is dimed!
Does anybody know whether the stock KC Mustang volume and tone pots are 500k or 250k? Normally, a Duncan JB would use 500k pots, while the Fender single coil in the neck position would use 250K pots. If Fender compromised and used 250k pots all around, wouldn't some high end be rolled off the JB? I suspect that is the case with this guitar. Conversely, if they are 250k pots and I swapped them for 500k pots to improve the sound of the JB, wouldn't the Fender single coil in the neck be potentially harsh and overly bright? If so,I could swap it out for a stacked single coil that works best with 500k pots.
