If you still want more treble, go for 1 meg pots. Fender used them in Teles in the late 60's early 70's. Ouch!

I know very little about pots and caps, but my first thought on reading the post title was to change the brass saddles (if it has them) for threaded steel. That makes a big difference. I learned that from making the mistake of doing the opposite and having to change back to the steel.

Here it is. The Taco Tele as I call it. This is the Tele I bought at a hole in the wall, mexican restaurant in east Texas.

Malcolm, where did you see a pic? I didn't have one posted until just now.

You posted a slightly fuzzy pic of the TacoTele right after you obtained it.
