    Debated posting these because they're SOO mainstream :p

    'Tribute' ASAT deluxe carved top, modded with Wilde L-90's (4H, 8H) just got this set in two days ago, still excited about it.

    My #1 and probably about as unique as they come. Full Pau Ferro fatback neck. Pau Ferro top over mahogany core body. Tappable single coils, 4-way switching, and a passive bass cut. Strat neck pickup. Not much this thing can't do.

    What do you mean by tappable single coils. I thought that was a humbucker thing?????

    Either way I love it. Strat neck pickup ftw!

    I mean single coils with taps installed. (Not to be confused with single coil sized humbuckers, or 'stacked' pickups) The typical 'Humbucker tap' usually refers to a coil split or coil cut, which removes one coil from the humbucker.


    TRUE single coil taps are a bit different. The wire is still wound as a single coil, but there's a 'tap' partway through the winding, which gets soldered to an eyelet, and wired to a switch, it lets you use part of the coil's windings, as opposed to the entire coil. It's basically like having two different pickups, or two outputs with the flip of a switch.
    So for example. The neck pickup's tap is at 6.5K DCR that's roughly the DCR you'd see for traditional strat pickups. This means the single coil was wound to 6.5K DCR and then the wire was soldered to an eyelet, to be fed to a 2 way switch. Essentially giving you a standard strat pickup. In fact, you could stop there and have a 'normal' strat pickup.

    With the 'tapped' pickup, though, you continue winding the pickup, from there. In this case, about 2K DCR is added, giving a total DCR of 8.5K at full output, which has a much more 'overwound' sound with more mids.
    It's a pretty simple concept, you just need to have pickups that are wound for it.

    Do you have a build thread for these guitars? What metal and acid did you use? Maybe PM so we don't clog up the thread. Thanks.

    Here is my tele home brew, sort of a Diddlycaster. It is thinline with mahogany back cherry top and a maple center core for the neck and PU's.
    It has Bill Lawrence Pu's, a L600 in the neck and a L48TL (twin blade) in the bridge. So it has a bit of everything in it but has the tele essence in the twang sound. It has a vol, tone and a blend knob which dials in the neck and bridge PU, instead of a switch it is all the way one way for bridge and all the way the other for neck and everything in between. Sorry the few photos do not have the knobs on. I am loving the sound this thing gives me despite the oddball look. Cheers Ron
