Well, I'm not sure the problem is brightness or lack of it, but when the tremelo arm wasn't blocked it was a more lively sounding guitar. It was also brighter. Maybe that's the problem. Sometimes heavy strings+a too firm or heavy wood absorbs vibrations. (For example 11's are the highest gauge good sounding strings on my ibanez, 12's sound dull and 11's on a strat scale may have as much as tension as 12's on a 335). Maybe there is a similar problem) I'll also try measuring the resistance of the pots as they may be crap as Al Taylor says. It takes a lot of time to change the setup of a guitar so that needs some spare time though.
