J5 tele too bright.

Post by Davesdrums » October 9th, 2017, 2:57 am

Hi,

I love my J5 tele but it's a bit too bright for me. Thinking of adding a tone cap since it has none. Good or bad idea? Any other suggestions?
Thanks!
Dave

Why not adjust at the amp?

That's a good point, but with my other guitar's I like the presence pretty wide open, a bit more clarity without being too harsh. They all still retain a warm sound I love. Not the j5. Guess I'll try 0.33 first. Thanks for the reply.
