    weak bridge pickup

    no shielding in there. Heck, I don't think there's even room left for a unicorn's fart in there lol. Yes I did solder the two series wires together and then connected them to the push/pull. But in my case, since I wanted the outside coils to be active, I soldered white and green together as...

    weak bridge pickup

    no it's that way whether it's in coil split mode or full humbucker mode. I'll try to get some pics later.

    weak bridge pickup

    with the coil split engaged, I have 8.3 at the bridge, 3.25 in the middle position, and 5.34 at the neck (I have a resistor wired in for the PRS/Fralin coil split method)

    weak bridge pickup

    Right. Checked all of those, all are secure and I don't see any unshielded wires touching where they shouldn't be. Side note: they need to make these Tele control cavities about twice as big as they are. And pickup companies should be tarred and feathered for using whatever gauge wire is...

    weak bridge pickup

    so I have a Contemporary Series Squier Tele with H-H pickups. I replaced the stock ones with a Duncan JB humbucker in the bridge and a Jazz humbucker in the neck. All was well. Now I've added a push-pull on the tone pot to split both coils. That works great too. The problem is the Bridge...

    attenuator for Vox amp

    Let me also say that I'm (obviously) a noob, so it's entirely possible I'm not setting the controls correctly. Also, could it be that the volume pot on the amp is a log type, and putting in a linear type would smooth out the drastic volume swell?

    attenuator for Vox amp

    It's loud af even with volume at 1 or 2. adding gain just makes it louder.

    attenuator for Vox amp

    @McGoldTopp the Vox doesn't have an effects loop so I'm not sure how the Bugera would connect to it.

    attenuator for Vox amp

    I have a Vox Pathfinder 15r amp that is already very loud at 2, have never been able to take her up past that to get any cool breakup or other tone effects. I see JHS has a simple pedal that attenuates the amp volume without losing the tone effects of playing on 10. Unfortunately, my amp does...

    solder dripped onto a fret

    Hey everybody. Has anyone else ever dripped solder onto a fret by accident? How did you get it all off? Yes I know, thisi is why we tape and cover everything, but I really didn't expect a glob to drip off while I was tinning the tip. I heated and used a qtip as best I could to mop it up (I...

    coil split neck pickup problems

    whale oil beef hooked... the problem may have originally been the other switch, but the new problem of no signal in middle position is because I went from an OG to a CRL switch, and they're not quite the same. I had the jumper wire running along the spine two down, over and down one, and two...

    coil split neck pickup problems

    @Peegoo are you talking about jumping the top two lugs on the P-P? Currently I each one grounded to the pot casing separately. Do they also need to be jumped between each other, or is that just if one wanted to just have one ground connection for both?

    coil split neck pickup problems

    thank you everyone. Based on @Peegoo's initial feedback, I inspected the 3 way blade switch and didn't see anything wrong, but I know on another project I ran into trouble because some solder dripped into the switch. So to be safe, I just swapped it for another new one. I also removed all of...

    coil split neck pickup problems

    Ignore all of that I guess except the diagram and the fact the neck pickup is only working with the tone pot pulled up. The bridge however is working as it should in full hb as well as split mode.

    coil split neck pickup problems

    Hi all. I recently picked up a Squier Contemporary HH Tele and put a SD JB humbucker in the bridge and a Jazz humbucker in the neck. I wired it up with a 3 way switch, 1 volume pot, and 1 tone pot, both push/pulls to split the coils. It was working fine, but I decided I wanted to split both...

    Telecaster Contemporary HH wiring help

    thanks for replying @Steve Holt ! I did find this, but as you said I would need a super switch, which would be ok. I'm just wondering now whether or not I'd use that manytone combinations or if it would just be overly complicating what it supposed to be a simple guitar. I'm leaning towards...

    Thanks! Will a relatively new player like me be able to recognize the difference in tone with the tusq?

    I'm measuring from the nut face to the fret. Bummer! I live the way the CV neck plays! And I'm a lefty so finding a donor guitar is next to impossible

    Hi folks. I recently picked up a Squier CV Tele butterscotch blonde. It's gorgeous, and the neck plays amazing. I put on Fender locking tuners, compensated brass saddles, CTS pots with 4 way switch mod, and S-D Quarter Pound pickups. It's loud af and has awesome tone. I can play the Stones, the...
