where are they situated ?
Very stupid question: where did you find the strat switch cap?
I know it may sound strange, but really cannot find it: for my vintage style 60s MIM I bought one, but it doesn't fit...
Cool guitar BTW!!!
just picked it up on ebay i think ?
whats the strat next to this tele, i have exactly the same 2 guitars only relic versions
Did we ever find out what the on-purpose mistake was?
Nice build, by the way.
I maybe had to file the inside down a bit, no biggy though, hope it helps
I put a 52 style milled jack plate in, recessed, from what I know fender never inserted the flush with the body, in any case micawber is a 53 so it will have had a pressed jack.
Sorry but I just cant play in-front of a camera, tried and its terrible, all thumbs. its very frustrating, but that's who I am lol
Sorry for the late response. That's my altered Mayer. I swapped the Pickguard and hardware for aged parts. Trying to mimic a light relic '59 I had. I'll try to post a picture tomorrow. Cheers, TF...
Here she is:
HD shot of Micawber before the brass bridge, interestingly the Buckers the right way around ?
How do I safely remove the 6th magnet from the bridge pickup ?
I strongly suspect you wind it that way.
I'd really like to get Micawber on a multi meter! I strongly suspect the bridge is wound to about 7k resistance to match the older (?) neck pickup. If the tales are true, it's a PAF, then the bridge would be too hot at 10k. Also, subjectively, listen to Micawber, it does not sound overwound or hot.
I also suspect the guitar has unique wiring. The neck pickup might be functionally single coil with a dummy coil. Run in series it would give you a specific jangly tone. The clue is the missing polepiece and apparently unfunctional switch.
Just guesses. I think Micawber received many iterations over the years.
So you think the pickup is actually wound round just five pole pieces?
Sad Sad day for me but micawber may very well be going up on ebay !
