    Recently got a 1994 Washburn USA MG-100 w/ HSS configuration. Had a Tone Zone in the bridge. Went to replace it with a Norton, and the dang thing won't fit. I was in disbelief (and a couple beers) and was not gonna NOT get the thing in after I'd already removed the TZ and soldered the Norton...
  2. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Was just wondering exactly how adjusting the pole pieces affects the pickup... specifically on Air Norton and Tone Zone. Does it just increase output, or does it also affect the eq? Also, I THINK the guitar shop I had install them put them in upside down (adjustable poles on norton are on the...

    Wiring help please, wired up my jem build following dimarzio instructions, its all the same but my 5 way switch is a 8 in line one, not the 4 per side like their pic. Single coil doesnt work on its own, but does in positions 2 & 4 giving straty sound. thanks

    I was just reading about this little thing: http://www.seymourduncan.com/products/electric/humbucker/triple-shot/triple_shot_swi/ I'm not sure if it would be sturdy enough to survive heavy gigging, but its a neat way to add pick up options. Anyone tried one out?

    Hey there. I was wondering if anyone could tell me what kind of pickups the old RG750s were equipped with. Since I got my old RG550 back, I've gotten the bug to mod my RG370DX. Before I originally bought the 550 in 1991, I had my eye on an RG750FA, but when I went to put it on layaway, they had...

    I was strongly considering making a replacement pickguard for my guitar. But I had a few questions: (1) Is it difficult to make one if I have access to a router (hand and table mounted)? (2) What is the possibility of ruining the original pickguard in the process of making a template out of...

    I picked up a 1000BP back when the '2002 model blow-out was happening on that friendly musician site, and the first one that was delivered had a pretty nasty dead spot on the 11th fret. After a lot of wrangling on the phone with MF, they agreed to exchange it for another one (but *I* paid for...

    2 pretty simple questions: 1. to get the jack socket out, do i need to unsolder it to take it off, then solder it back on after, or is there a simpler way? 2. same for the grounding on the trem claw, do i need to take it off the claw and soler it back on afterwards?

    Apologies if this has been posted before but I couldn't find it in a search. What are the main differences between the SZ320 and the SZ520? All I can see is the maple top and the different inlays. Is there much of a quality difference? Cheers
  20. Pickups & wiring
    A week or two ago, I put an Air Norton 7 in my RG7640 to replace the stock neck pickup. It sounds better (i.e. not as muddy, a touch more responsive to pinching) than the stock but not by a ridiculous margin. As a matter of fact, by a rather thin margin. On top of that, my neck pickup is quite...
