SB-2 Stacked Tone Mod

Postby MickeyOne » Mon Feb 04, 2013 8:15 pm

I am repurchasing an SB2, I let go previously. Loved the bass, but cannot deal with the tone wide open.
I want to do the mod with minimum expense.

Is this easy to do yourself? I am not a great solderer but have swapped out pickups.
If I have a shop do it, how much should it cost?
Is it feasible and effective to do just one pickup?

Easy to do, but a dual-concentric pot in 250K will be a bit tough to source. 500K is easy to find and can be made into 250K, but it's a hassle. The 500K could be used as-is, but will brighten the tone a bit.

I did it - or should I say someone did it for me [smilie=icon_biggrin.gif]

I like it a lot more that way. I have two stacked knobs, vol/tone for each pu.

Dooh...that was 10 years ago [smilie=smilie_kopf.gif]

I can pull the guard the next days and have a look.
