The 50's Wiring
"As the name implies. This is the Wiring found in Gibsons First Generation of Electric Guitars. When people refer to the tone of the 50s, what they are really talking about is Gibsons 1959 Manufacturing Year. This one factory year inspired a Mythic Reputation in Rock’n’Roll History"
So, Why Do People Love this type?
It's how the circuit is designed. It is All About The Treble. As you Roll Off The Volume. Less highs fade away. Creating, as some claim, a Clear, Natural Tone.
Why do some people not like it?
The main reason is, Every Ear is Different. Some people think "it makes the guitar too bright." Some people "Don't like its non-linear taper".
