I ended up in a strange situation where I sold a guitar (86 Tele) and the new owner returned the body, pick guard, SD HotRail, and the bridge. I purchased a new Tele neck (Squier), and two humbuckers from a 2014 Gibson SGJ. I also have the original pots from the SGJ. I want to use two of the pots and one pickup in my Tele. Im keeping the Hot Rail in it. Will I have any issues wiring this up with two pots in the guitar instead of the 4 that the SGJ had? This guitar is not pretty, so I want it to sound unique. Ill spend money upgrading pickups if this works.
It'll work. The only thing to consider is that the pots from the SG might be a different value to the tele's original pots, so it might sound a bit brighter than you expect.
