    Confused about pickup resistance

    >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...

    1996 top loader MIM Tele

    This is mine, mfc. 12/1995. I drilled the back out and went to 3 brass barrel saddles, but the plate is original. Nothing stamped that I can see.

    Simple caps question

    >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...

    Series/Parallel with push/pull tone pot for Nashville Tele with 5-way switch.

    My pleasure. >Someone told me I could break the small ground wire to the bridge plate and run a cable off that.
