I still haven’t done anything with my box of goodies from Guitar Fetish to beat up that New York Pro . It’s not that I’m nervous, I just haven’t had time to sit down & get it done yet. I’m also still open to any tips/tricks/advice. clone
I also recently came across these cool blog posts from Guitar WTF (another good follow!):
- The Bridge Pickup On My Stratocaster Is Too Bright! – Would not be a problem for me, but it did teach me about the capacitor. Should I mess around with changing the type of capacitor since I’m going from singe coils to humbuckers?
- Learn To Solder And Open Up A Whole World Of DIY Guitar Modifications – Exactly what I’m trying to do!
I did buy one of these from Harbor Freight…
Think it will help? Everyone seems to say it will. I might need a sponge too?
How would you connect the dots here? What pots & capacitors would you use?
Should I do the 7-sound thing? What if I want the neck & the bridge both on at once?
Should I replace the pots while I’m in there? How do I tell if they’re 250k or 500k?
I’m guessing a wiring diagram with my proposed setup doesn’t already exist out there, not even at Stew-Mac. Looks like these cats will make one for $30, but I think I can do that myself. (Although a very rough one.)
I need a crash course in guitar wiring, I guess. Ha ha.
I also might try to setup a work bench/space in the basement so I don’t ruin the dining room table.
Should I get a book?
I know I’m over-thinking this. There’s too many options. Ha ha.
