comment Electric guitar tone control fault
You say you bought the same value potentiometer, but did you buy the same type? I.e. either logorithmic or linear, see this article: diyguitarmods.com/potentiometer.php

comment Difference between recording with a microphone in front of the amp vs. using an amp simulator?
An amp simulator can be used at low volume or with headphones and so can be used without disturbing those around you. Not always possible when micing a live amp.

I have updated my answer, but in summary it looks like you DO need 4-conductor wiring on your replacement pickups.

I would check the frequency response of your mic and make sure it is not giving an artificial frequency boost around the 250kHz - do you hear the pronounced B harmonic from your guitar that is evident in the sample you posted?

How are you physically capturing the signal, are you using a microphone or some other transducer? Does the transducer you are using have a flat frequency response over the desired frequency range? As per Stephane's answer, a copy of the audio sample would be useful.

247Hz is approx. the frequency of the open B string. Did you damp the other five strings (to stop them sounding) when you took your sample?
