Schecter Tele Pickup Re-work
I got this Schecter Tele Pickup in for a rework. The owner said it sounded like crap and not at all like a Tele so he wondered if there was anything I could do with it. I rewound it using some Green wire to more vintage specs of 8K ohms and installed a steel base plate that helps to get that real Tele sound we all know so well. As soon as it's out of the wax pot I'll try to record a sound file of it.
