Blank neck plate?
Ok, So now I've got her wired up like a broadcaster, with a pot for blending. I had to remove one of the caps during the process, as was required. Only now I don't get much variation at all. It sounds to warm, I'm not getting much twang from the bridge. Can anybody tell me weather this is because I have removed the cap or not, and if so, how can I incorporate it back into the broadcaster wiring ? thank you
what about it, sorry ??
Does anybody have anything worth trading for this.
ps I lost access to my last email address and couldn't reset my password, so I've had to join up again, but it is me !
I'm getting a Micawber replica built as we speak, and I am about to decide on what pots/caps and wiring I should drop in there...
Have you solved the no twang from bridge issue??
I am undecided whether or not to go the Blend wiring or stick with the standard 3 way.. Any thoughts on this now you have had a play with yours??
It OK now yeah, turns out it was more to do with my amp. The broadcaster wiring is sweet, I just keep selected on bridge and just add as much base as I like. Pretty sure this is what the original has. Middle selection is OK for a standard split, the neck is very heavy 'warm' if you will, but it always will be. I went for a luxe 53 telecaster wiring harness, about 40 pound on E-Bay, but they probably do a broadcaster one as-well.
250k pots, What about the bucker, wouldn't it be thin? What about using 500k pots and adding a 250k resistor for the bridge? I'm building a Micawber and will be assembling Her next week...
Define thin please. My hb takes over the guitar when its selected.
I was thinking that the bucker wouldn't be operating at it's full capacity with a 250k vs. the 500k, resulting in a thin or less full output. I am thinking buckers want a full 500k to sound their best? Here is how my harness is currently set up. I also have a pair of 375k pots that I may use. I will be building her Tuesday. Cheers...
Here's my current Keef Inspired...
looking good, are you going to age it ?
Probably not, I'll just play the piss out of it and let Her age with love & affection...
Well if you want it to age anything like the original, you have to strum it up over the neck
Nice job! I've done some Micawbers too. I'd recommend using a 500k pot for the vol, and a 250k for the tone and real oil & paper cap. Sounds great this way w/ the SD Antiquity and a Don Mare Keefer...
.033 or a.022? I've got an Antiquity going in the neck and a Stuart Lap Wrap for the bridge...
The neck on this looks sweet. Just wondering but is there a reason why the vol and not the tone suits being a 5ook, also what wiring configuration you got? 22 cap or other ? cheers
I've always used .047... The Allparts Vitamin Q's are good:
The Jensen Copper Foil Paper in oil are the Bees Knees if you wanna get crazy with it:
Either one makes a huge difference. I would recommend the Jensen if you're going all out...
J.Banning, Are you using the 270k resitor to step down the bridge?
That is really sweet! congrats.
Thanks for the compliments on the neck!
I always use the higher value for the vol. I read somewhere to do it this way, and it makes since. You're pretty much splitting the difference... and it sounds good to my ear this way. I actually got the idea from talking with Don Mare when I ordered his Keefer bridge pickup. He also recommended to swap out the stock magnets on the SD Antiquity but I've never tried that yet...
To my ear it's not necessary. I play primarily through a hand wired Tweed Double Deluxe and a Vox Ac30, and it sounds great through both!
