I have a loaded pickguard I had wired up a couple months ago for a project I've decided to abandon. I decided to try it out in my CV50's Strat and wanted to keep the original pickups so the only thing different is the wiring, CTS pots, CRL switch, Switcraft jack, and a .022 Sprague Orange Drop cap. It seems muddy now compared to what it was before. It's got to be the cap, so tomorrow I'll swap it out for the original one. Has anyone had this problem with the Orange Drops? It was what I found to be recommended, but I sure don't like it. It also seems that the tone pots don't make much of a difference at all. I'll go back over my wiring...maybe I connected something wrong.
