    P-90 neck, “Tele” bridge partscaster help

    I’m trying to get a relatively balanced sound between a Duncan P-90 neck pickup and a generic (StewMac maybe?) Tele bridge pickup. I built this guitar on a whim when I realized I had enough scrap parts, and it played OK, but the P90 way overpowered the bridge PU. The deets: Neck P-90 measures...

    Adding series switch to Tele

    I know this has already been discussed here, but I have a slight variation. I want to use one of these, with a 3 way switch, to run the middle pickup in series with whichever pickup is selected (99% of the time it will be the bridge for solos). 2 questions - first, will these work? They are a...

    Hey y'all, Long time reader first time poster. I picked up an amp from a garage sale recently that is an old 2 prong "vogue" amp. It's pretty much identical to this Regal 300 AMP which I pulled the attached schematic for. I added a 3 wire plug with a ground on the output transformer lug...

    Reverse Telecaster Wiring HELP

    Im rewiring my player telecaster with the SD 1/4 lb tele set and the control plate reversed.

    Mini Toggle Wiring - 8 lugs vs. 6 lugs?

    I'm trying to wire up a pair of humbuckers to their own 3-way mini-toggle DPDT on/on/on switches for series/parallel/split, but the only diagrams I can find for this setup use 6-lug switches like these: Whereas mine have 8 lugs each. How do I use 8 lugs for this?
