Re: Jem Jr with H/S/S, possible?

[QUOTE=linus;1413834]Would it be possible to install a pickguard with a Humbucker & 2 single coils in a Jem Jr, instead of a Humbucker, single coil, humbucker?[quote]
Yes the body route allows a single or humbucker but you'd need a new pickguard to convert it neatly to SSH. Of course you could just wire the neck humbucker as a single coil (or parallel) and change nothing assuming the PU is 4-wire.

Limiting tone & sound possibilities.

Is there a downside to this? The guitar being routed for a humbucker in the neck.

Will peobably install actives in it
