    Fender Double-tap Shawbucker wiring: how to humbuck

    It is defeating the object of the DoubleTap design. Mr Shaw spent a lot of time experimenting with the coil values to get the split/tapped sounds he wanted. I wonder how many failed attempts to use the regular Fender HB color code have there been. Green and bare to ground, black and white...

    Serial number look up, oops. They are correct. I double checked and my pictures were swapped. My 2003 has been heavily modified since bought new

    (Now with photos) Convert Fender Telecaster American Pro II from 3 to 6 saddles, help

    Another comparison image to try to clear up the confusion. Cotoh modern and Fender vintage bridges have the same screw fixing and string-through hole locations relative to the bridge pickup.

    (Now with photos) Convert Fender Telecaster American Pro II from 3 to 6 saddles, help

    The solution is fit an American Standard/Series or a Deluxe/Elite/Ultra bridge with 6 saddles. The American Standard/Series pre 2008 is similar to the Delxe Elite with block saddles and offset intonation screws. You will have to drill one extra hole. Fender part numbers may help in your search...
