Vintage Dearmond resistor


My electro 2 has what seems to be 15k resistors in series with the pickups. I've heard about this. Would it better to bypass them?


Yes. Bypassing them will result in a boost of output and clarity.


They were usually 2.2K, but yeah...get rid of them. The pickups are connected to the wiper arms of the volume pots, and they'll start to sound funny if you play with the pickup volume knob much below 2, but nobody would ever do that.
