    HSS Wiring Help - No auto-split

    I have just rewired the guitar, added the new tone knob, changed the silver knobs to white ones and installed a new humbucker. It sounds great and works good. The only thing I had to change was the Humbucker hot and ground wire since it was acting weird on position 2. Here's a before after of...

    Hollow, how are you? (The Hollow & Semi-Hollow owners club)

    Got myself this 2008 Epiphone Casino and it has an interesting story behind it. The first time I have ever played a hollow/semihollow was in a Guitar Store that was in my way to college. I was blown by the sweet singing tone of a Epiphone Dot and saw an Epiphone Casino up there. At the time I...

    HSS Wiring Help - No auto-split

    Hello, thank you for all the work you've gone through. I redrawed your diagram over the one I had. Is it like this or have I understood something wrong? Thank you so much!

    HSS Wiring Help - No auto-split

    Thanks for the kind response. And I would be really thankful if you could upload your diagram! Thank you very much for the instructions! I drawed over the manufacturer's diagram. If you happen to check it, could you tell me if it's right?

    HSS Wiring Help - No auto-split

    Hi There! I have a Cort G250, with HSS pickups setup and push pull pot (to split the humbucker), 1 vol, 1 tone with a 5 way-switch (Auto-Split on position 2). I'm planning to change it to a 1 Master Volume, 1 Bridge Tone, 1 Mid + Neck Tone but I've been told that it's not possible to have a...

    Squier Affinity: First of all, orange! Second of all, awesome!

    Mine is a Affinity Tele, Chinese from 2016 I have no knowledge on pots sizing so I won't comment on that Please, change the output jack and the jack plate as well (I plant to do it on mine shortly) pickups are okay, they do sound harsh but you can always do alternate wiring (remove treble...

    Cheapo Modern-size 3-saddle bridge?

    Hi there again guys, I was looking through Amazon and just found this: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01LEF1JPO?psc=1 Looks like a American Standard Sized bridge with 3 saddles (and top-load holes). Kind of insta bubba mod, maybe? Am I wrong about the dimensions for a Affinity Tele? I see that...

    Hi there, I saw one of your (from 2013) where you modded a Affinity Tele with a Bigsby-style trem. You did the bubba mod on the stock bridge and used the old saddle holes to let the string to through, did it give you any intonation issues? Anyway, thank you so much and congratulation for the...

    Affinity Tele - Thinking of modding it

    Hi, thank you for such a kind reply! Well, looking at the results on the bridge I might stick to a P-90 on the neck and keep the single coil on the bridge. Are you happy with how the p-90 sounds on the neck?

    Squire affinity tele series

    I bought mine new and It came with no problems with the frets and the neck was all smooth. I just had to set the strings action and pup height that were pretty much off.

    Affinity Tele - Thinking of modding it

    Yeah, that's pretty much the hype when going over to the States. Get as many cool things on reasonable price as possible, lol!

    Affinity Tele - Thinking of modding it

    I'll think about it, I'm not really fond of Single coil sized humbuckers, but maybe I should check some options around. And there are, in fact, some import duties but it's more like a dumb idea of "protecting the national market" by buffing up the prices with ghost taxes. The dumb thing is, by...

    Affinity Tele - Thinking of modding it

    Thank you for replying! Well, I do get your point. But I feel there's nothing wrong on trying different things on a tele or any other kind of guitar. As an additional point, here in Brazil guitars are extremely overpriced. So having a cheap guitar and mod it is a way to experiment different...

    Affinity Tele - Thinking of modding it

    Yeah, I still can just put a P-90 into the neck as the pickguard would cover any mess lol

    Affinity Tele - Thinking of modding it

    @Ira7 I did thing about putting the screws back onto the holes but I really don't like the aesthetics of it, that's why I'm trying to look for a really clean install And now that I'm thinking of it, I've never been to Rio. Neither during the Olympics lol

    Affinity Tele - Thinking of modding it

    @BigJerm Thanks for the reply! So, one thing I find curious is that recently I removed the pickguard from my affinity and the Neck pup cavity is fairly different from that image. Mine looks pretty similar to standard neck pup cavity (triangle-ish shaped) so I might have to do some routing on...

    Affinity Tele - Thinking of modding it

    Hi guys, been a long time reader and today I've decided to post a question I've had some hard time to find out. So, I have a 2-tone sunburst Affinity Tele and I'm planning on putting two p-90's on it. At first, I was planning on getting standard sized p-90's but here in Brazil it is actually...
