>relationship between pickup resistance & volume<
Not to be a wise guy but nothing really.
DCr more or less isn't like horsepower.
There are other things at play there...................................like magnet type and strength, and that effecting wire size & amount etc., in comparison...
It's these OPINIONATED threads that go on and on and on, page after page.
This one is like caps, tonewood, and neck material.
You can read all of them, and in the end, (lose out on days of playing time 😵💫) still not have a definitive answer on what is the truth.
I have to admit though I did...
Being too lazy to read the diagram,
>Also, there's no need to mess with the bridge grounded baseplate. Leave it as is.<
Splain that please ?
P.S. oh Sorry Moosie, just saw this: "My brain is a little fried" (we were posting at the same time)
You can wait until tomorrow to answer if need be :p
>to capture the "classic" tone<
Caps don't make a pickup, or tone, and when the pot is at 10, they don't mean jack anyway (value used).
I call the cap a tool the tone pot uses in its job. The higher the value, the faster/darker things will get as you turn the pot from about 6-0.
It's a player...
>Someone told me I could break the small ground wire to the bridge plate and run a cable off that. Would that work?<
>Also, would this retain my current combinations on the 5-way switch<
>what position would the 5-way need to be <
I believe the 5 w would need to be all...
