Usually that extreme of a change only happens when you use a very high value of pot with active pickups instead of 25k.

You do have to sand it no matter what. But just sand with 400 or 600 grit until there are no more shiny spots.

For future reference, if you have a hardtail or trem bridge, those require F spaced pickups.

Dont use either. Check out guitarfetish. Get the power rails. Great pickups for the price.
But you could also find used EMG and duncans on ebay for around 45-55 bucks.
