Hi Peter,  
Try 1u. This will lower the gain for ( unwanted ) low freqs and make the voicing somewhat brighter and less muddy.  
If it's still too dark after the above tweak then you could add a small cap ( let's say 47p - 100p ) on the ungrounded lugs from the pot.  
Happy & healthy 2005 to u 2!  
Hope this helps,
