So, Firebirds have never been among my "always wanted one" guitars, like a black 70's strat with maple fretboard, Ric 330, or Gibson Les Paul Custom.
At least, not until recently.
I have a firebird pickup in the neck of a tele and it is amazing, so I have been thinking about how much I...
I have a neck-through guitar on layaway at Guitar Center, waiting for Pawn Clearance (stay tuned for a NGD soon).
When I put the deposit down, they made the pitch for their warranty and how the manufacturer would not honor any warranty with it being used.
Normally, I would not be too worried...
Anyone have a diagram for a 4 way switch config that is B, B+N in phase, B+N OoP, N?
(Or B, B+N OoP, B+N in phase, N -- I don't care)
Whenever you search for 4 way with out of phase the diags that come up are usually 4-way series wiring with a separate switch or P-P pot for OoP.
Got my Squier Tele Deluxe neck from Stratosphere yesterday and attached to my Telecaster Custom II.
Added some Gotoh SD-91 locking tuners I had bought for my SRV sig strat but then decided to keep the gold hardware.
Other changes I had already made were a new black pickguard, new fillisters...
I have recently runout of modern insulated wire and was wondering were you folks usually get yours.
I still have some pushback, cloth insulated. I usually use like with like. Additionally, the next wiring job is going to be a little tight so I think the thinner overall diameter of the modern...
Was looking at putting a CV Tele Deluxe neck on a Squier VM Telecaster Custom II. I *looks* like the neck is rounded like a strat neck and the pocket on the body is squared like a standard tele.
Other than the possibility of a slight gap at the corners, does this matchup look like it will work...
So, I have a couple of classic vibes, and all have the standard waterslide serial number on the back.
I noticed several Squiers at Music Go Round that have what looks like a decal under one or more layers of clear coat. Basses, teles, and others.
Pics from a CV Tele Deluxe at MGR vs one I...
I have a Seymour Duncan 59 Neck pickup.
Has a third, white wire though and I confirmed with Seymour Duncan that 1) it is a 59, but 2) that wire is not original.
So, it looks like a coil shunt (hope I am using the right word).
The full pickup reads 7.54 k normally and the white reads 3.73...
Yellow tortoise shell from Warmoth. Thought I would try the Prince vibe.
(I am aware this is the wrong side ;) , but since the pickguard is translucent this is the best way to show off how it is going to look on the front.)
I hear of folks cutting them down from time to time and wondered what is usually used.
Was guessing an angle grinder?
I have one I want to cut down but was unsure what tool was best. I have an angle grinder and a Dremel Sawmax (which is surprisingly useful, if a little bulky and non-ergonomic)...
I am trying to install a mini-switch in the middle hole of a 3-hole telecaster control plate and wondered if anyone has any advice about washers, etc., to make this work.
I am starting to think it would be better to just get a 2-hole plate and drill a smaller hole.
If anyone has an experience...
