Hi everybody! I'm actually gonna try to build an axe with five single-coil pups, incorporating, for each pup, On/Off, volume, Par/Ser, and Phase In/Out; and then a master volume and master rotary five-capacitor tone control with bypass. Whew. Also building the body from spruce 2"x4"x8' cut in quarters to 24" lengths and glued edge to edge to yield a plank 24" long (with the grain) by 14" wide by 1 3/4" thick. Got a good GFS neck (not into making my own, yet.) I'll prolly show this build in the Home Depot Forum. My intention for this creature is to be a test bed for chasing tone. I'm starting with SCs, but I have a matched set of passive EMG humbuckers to test as well, and eventually I'll try an HSH set-up, looking at it as 5 pups. Finding the best(?) placement for the pups (at harmonic nodes as a start, I think) is my first priority, after making sure the wiring works, of course. And, of course, that's where this thread comes in. Does anyone (CC, Fezz, Eddie, Fuzzy, et al) see anything that will prevent this wiring from working? I have doubts about the Ser/Par-Grounding part, but I'm sure it's nothing that can't be rectified (ha.) The SC pups are two sets of GFS Overwound Strat pups (around 9K resistance each) with mid RPRW - $17 each set! - and the EMGs passive HBs (7.48K neck, 16.67K bridge SRO-OC1s) are relatively new - $60 the pair. Naturally, any suggestions are most welcome and appreciated. Thanks for peeking in.
