    Strange wiring issue. H-H guitar with LP style switch. Super 3 in bridge- works fine. Installing PAF Pro in neck. Have installed this pickup in this guitar before. With red to hot, black and white soldered together and taped off, I get sound when green is grounded, but as soon as I...
  4. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    From the diagram below it looks like there should a wire that goes from the back of the pot to one of the lugs of the pot. For some reason I thought you just need to solder the ground wire for each pick up to back of the pot?? Is this necessary??? Is there suppose to be a wire here??

  10. Pickups & wiring
    Very simple question. When wiring a Strat pickguard, does it matter which of the three pots you solder your grounds to, volume or tone, or can you divide them up in whatever way is most efficient? I'd like to reduce some of the wiring clutter in my MIM Strat. Almost every ground goes to the...

    Hi, About to re-wire my H-H guitar, whilst doing this I'm going to shield it at the same time. I'm planning to use guitarnuts style shielding and star grounding (I've been very happy with results I've had using this in the past). My question is about the pick-up cavities. The pick-ups are...
