OP: Yes I admit........... ive got a tele problem.
Not quite in its final form but strung up, roughly intonated and played for a bit. Saddles are high and flat right now but it is very bluesy and it rocks as well.
This is an idea that I’m liking
Holy smokes that’s awesome!
It plays great as well.
Looks great. I love it!!
What does that switch between the volume and tone pot do?
Switches between three tone caps....I don’t use it much but wanted to try it.
Well, what are the three caps and what have you learned from using the switch? Please share.
Also, I had an experience where I changed the cap from a (measured) .057 to a .022, and think I can hear it brighter now with the tone pot all the way up, which shouldn't happen. Can you hear any difference at all when you switch between your three cap values with the tone pot turned full up?
Thanks, and what a beautiful guitar that turned out to be. Even though it covers more wood I think I like the conventional pickguard better than the previous.
It started as a way to A-B caps to test expensive bumble bee types against cheapest.....very little difference. Now I had a 15 a 33 and a 47 uf choices. When plugged to the drri it likes the 33 the super champ x2 sounds best with the 15 I’m not a fan of the 47.
Thanks! When the tone knob is all the way up (brightest sounding) and you switch between the three caps can you detect any difference in the brightness of the tone?
UGH!!! Did you HAVE to cover over all that beautiful wood with a pickguard? And to quote someone from long ago: "YOU CAN NEVER HAVE TOO MANY TELES!"
Wow. Amazing redwood. While I normally love mots pickguards, maybe I'd consider a different one for such. a beautiful top as this, something ng like an amber flame maple guard or maybe a bleached redwood.. similar to what you have for a top but bleached lighter.
I had 3 bassets and a plotthound. Hounds. Awesome.
Yes. The redwood top highlights pickscratches and they glow like neon.
You can tell the difference on the caps but it’s not an earthshaking change....it’s better say to use a darker cap on a bright amp or vice versa
Also nearly every comment was that the top ...especially under lights on stage is too uniform. The contrast looks a lot better....if you disagree do yours differently.
If it makes you feel better. The screw heads are dummies and I use 3m adhesive sheet to mount the guard...no holes.
That is brilliant!
And at the risk of being a real pain, all I am trying to ask is if you "dime" the tone pot and don't touch it at all, play on the same amp at the same settings, and just switch between caps, can you tell a difference in the brightness of the tone. I can't tell for sure if that is what the answer you posted above means. I understand you can tell a difference in their tapers, etc. But your set-up is a perfect way to answer a question that was being batted around here a couple weeks back. Conventional wisdom is the cap value makes no difference with the tone on "10." But I thought mine sounded brighter at 10 after going from a .057 to a .022. Wondering what your set-up proves about that one way or the other.
I say at ten it does make a difference I can hear.....even though others will make a good case for that not happening.
