The Harley Benton is a great mod platform if you want an affordable Jazzmaster style guitar with P90's.
I replaced all the electronics in mine:
- Tonerider Vintage P90 pickups
- Orange Drop cap
- CTS pots and
- Switchcraft toggle switch
- Neutrik jack
Great value pickups, they really cut through the band mix!
I had a customer who wanted some mods and repairs for his beautiful Japanese Marcus Miller signature bass.
First of all, the bass needed a new jack, since it was falling apart after all those years.
He also wanted a preamp upgrade. We decided to make him a Sadowsky style preamp, replaced the treble and bass pots and shielded the pickguard and cavity to make it a little more quiet.
Sounds amazing! Thight bass tones, punchy mids, clear highs!
This stratocaster had a broken tone potentiometer and was a little noisy. I cleaned up the wiring a bit, fixed the tone control, replaced the flimsy jack with a Switchcraft and gave the pickguard and cavity some extra shielding.
Great pickup configuration in this one, all Seymour Duncan:
- APS-2 in the neck for a somewhat rounder, yet vintage tone
- SSL-2 in the middle to get that strat tone in position 2 and 4
- SSL-3 high output screaming single coil in the bridge
