Pickups

TV Jones T-Armond Installation and recommendations. Help please!

1

Hi,

I'm building a guitar with a local luthier (I'm from Chile) and I bought T armond for it. I wanted to ask you what would you recommend as the setting for the installation of the pickups. It's a solidbody guitar with and independent volumen for each pickup and a master volume and tone. I want to get a versatile sounding guitar, warm, good for soloing blues ( not necessarily the blues tone, just a good clean sound) and also classic rock tunes, that handles well overdrive and fuzz.

I've attached pictures of the guitar but need information regarding pots, resistance, pickups orientation, etc...

I will be using an ABM 2400 roller bridge and a Les tremm II tremolo.

I have the no eras mount

THanks!

Are you asking about pot values? I learned that in the 1950s Gretsch useed 1 meg pots for their guitars with DeArmond / Dynasonic pickups. I installed 1 meg pots in my Duo Jet with Gretsch Dynasonics and they sound great. The guitar came stock with 500K pots.
