    Hi, I have a '77 Dual Sound i bought new back then. i did the coil-cut as per the directions which came in the box. Did that cut off the coil away from the bridge? (Pickup was orientated with wire exiting HB towards volume pots in the normal fashion.) I'm putting it in a different guitar...

    Its almost brand new with almost all the lead(about 11 inches). I bought off the bay a bit back and installed it in my guitar and it doesn't look right at all with the yellow. I am usually not picky about the way it looks but it just plain out looks weird. Its a Super Distortion with 4...

    I jus pulled out a mystery Dimarzio from a Kramer I recently bought. The plate of the pickup just says "Dimarzio Pickups, Made in U.S.A. There is a white lead, a black lead, and a bare lead. The multimeter is reading around 13.68K resistance. According to DiMarzio's website, the Super...

    Okay, thinking of wiring a super distortion in my bridge slot (strat, swamp ash body) with a coil split option for more single coil-ish tone. The thing is, I'm still not 100% convinced. How would you guys describe the Super Distortion, and what do you think of it?
  9. Pickups & wiring
    I'm trying to do a guitar with just the Pickups straight to the jack, via no volume pot or tone. Is that possible? I tried with a HB directly to the jack but the noice was overwhelming. I din't earth anything though. How would the schematics look like?
  10. Pickups & wiring
    Well I just did the last pickup swap in my new Kramer, and WOW, it sounds amazing! I got the guitar as new old stock about a month ago, hadn't been used since 1987 when it was made. When I got it, it was outdated for metal. The pickups were unpotted, so I got insane microphonic feedback no...

    I'm in the market for the best software in drums and grand pianos, for your money. As far as drums, i've come across Reason drumkits, BFD, EZdrummer, DFH superior, addictive drums. I hear lots of good things about ezdrummer, but i'm kind of stuck deciding which one is best in terms of realism...

    Was thinking of getting a zebra PAF pro but I don't like the look of the black pole pieces against the cream bobbin, would it be possible to swap them for the chrome ones out of a super distortion? are they the same size?

    As a wee lad, i took a gander at the endorsees of Dimarzio and that pretty much decided what i would try. Upon maturing a bit, i decided to give the Duncans a try in my AS80 and they sound amazing. Granted, the guitar itself had no business sounding that good for only $500 ( i taught at a...

    *EDIT* Sitting on my high horse I screwed up the title. Hehe. *EDIT* It seems like 75% of the time either of these words are used, they are misspelled. So here is a little education on the matter. DUAL becomes DUEL - Dual means having a double nature. A duel is formalized combat. If you...

    Hi: I am installing single Evolution humbucker in my Fat Strat. Have changed pickguard to be one for humbucker only. I will be installing single volume potentiometer. What value should I go with? * 500K because it is a humbucker? * 250K because it is "bright" Fender's body? * 1M because it is...

    Y'know in terms of pure design - so from a playing point of view only, nothing to do with aesthetics or personal preference with regard to the look of guitar, what guitar do you think is the best available? Points to consider are; Upper fret access - so, body design. Electrics and hardware...

    i picked up an old RG560 last week. it was in pretty bad shape so the first thing i did was strip it down. the bridge humbucker turns out to be a dimarzio, but has no model stamped on the base. what i do know: has 12 silver hex-head pole pieces that do not extend through the base plate. base...
