    Hello. I have had an original Tom Scholz Solist in my closet for awhile now. It is broken and I have a co-worker who is an electronics guy who is going to take a stab at fixing it for me. The main part I need is the 1/4" phone jack part that attaches to the circuit board. It's is easy enough to...
  4. Pickups & wiring
    Recently I have been finally getting to wiring up a few of my guitars I've had sitting on the backburner. In doing this I've come across several bad input jacks that I've ordered off of ebay. I pretty much always use switchcraft jacks so when I got them I made sure the listing said...

    Dear all, After working on my guitar for the last couple of weeks here are some tiny pics of the results which I hope you will like. I want to thank this forum for the great tips people have given! It is an original 2000 RG550 EX with exchanged pickguard and electronics. I started to hate the...

    My 5 way pickup selector switch has broken on one of the ends so now I can't use one of the positions, so I was wondering where I could order a replacement one that isn't just cheap garbage that will break after I install it. Thinking about replacing the tone and volume pots too. So, what 5...

    Hey guys, I recently purchased an S420 with the stock INF's. I play in a progressive melodic metal band (The Discovery, check out our FB :smile:) so I decided to go with white w/ black pole Evolution bridge and Liquifire neck. I figured that while I'm getting that done, I may as well upgrade...

    Plugs are a lovely invention. Soldering isn't much fun. Combine both axioms and it starts looking like a good idea to transition to solderless elements. :) I've read claims that soldering gives you better contacts. Is there any truth to that? Plugs work for EMG, though that's usually actives...

    What are good and bad cleaning sprays to use on guitar switches, pots, etc.? I'm not in the US and likely won't be able to find the usual recommended types, so any idea what to look for in terms of ingredients or "specs"? I read that some types can damage plastics (and guitar finish?), and...

    Okay guys. My jcustom RG8420ZE has been pulling off something really strange lately. first I thought I was just imagening things but some further test proved that something strange is going on. The guitar has the EMG 81/85 active pickups and the Edge Zero trem. Every now and then when I pick...

    P/J Bass with Single Coil Dimarzio Jazz Pickup and Dimarzio Split Humbuckers. Had this wired up in a music store but there's buzz through any amp I play unless I have my hand resting on any metal hardware which seems to earth it out or stop it somehow. Here's the pics of the wiring, any info...

    I am currently working on stripping down an old strat style body that was set up with HSH config on a pickgaurd. I am wanting to relocate the electronics and set it up for HH without a pickgaurd. Some of the cavities i can get squared up and i will be able to glue in some wood. What could i use...

    Hi guys, I'm planning on building a small amp such as the Ruby... http://www.runoffgroove.com/ruby.html I believe its only a couple of watts. But what is it that determines wattage in an amp? And how could one go about increasing that? Is it simply more power or bigger speaker or what? Thanks
