There seems to be a problem when pairing a Fender American Vintage Telecaster bridge pickup, with a Fender "Nocaster" '51 re-issue neck pickup. Looks like they're out of phase. Here's how I fix it...
Soldering up a "modern" wiring circuit for my Wilko Johnson Fender Telecaster
Fitting a custom tone circuit on my Nashville Telecaster. Accommodating a neck/bridge pickup combination for the middle (3) switch position, and also incorporating a Fender TBX tone unit.
The Telecaster control circuit is about a basic a circuit as exists for electric guitars. There's an additional modification in this case - the addition of a treble bleed - but the circuit is simple, and ideal for a relative beginner in guitar electronics like me, to get to know how things get connected
