Thanks, R-Man .
That is slick!
I really like it. How is that P90 mounted? Might be a dumb question but I've never built a guitar.
Take a close look at the pickup. There are 8 screws there. 6 of them are pole pieces, the other two secure the pickup directly to the body in a shallow route. Crude, but effective!
Cool, thanks for the quick response. All I've ever worked on is strats.
Foam is your friend!
Just few questions!
1. Strat neck to Tele body? Any difference in fit?
2. Hardtail string thru bridge? String thru body like most teles
3. Route for P90
4 Bridge size in reference to neck size , radius, nut width, tuner stagger, string trees?
NO Load Tone? Does that mean there is no tone cap?
it means taking apart and modifying the carbon wiper strip of a cts pot so that when it's fully on (knob turned fully clockwise) it's (the pot and cap) out of the circuit ... crack the pot knob 1/8" counter clockwise and the pot - and 'tone' cap - are engaged. with the pot and cap out of the circuit, no pickup treble is lost and the true tone of the pickup can be experienced.
I'd say it's 95% in the magic of RD's skills.
That's too cool! Now I'm going to have to make one...
Rob would it be better to put the no load on the other end, the counter clockwise end so you get the tone pot on a full 10 when you are not using it in no load mode?, I almost never use the fully counterclockwise direction. You just got me thinking here. I have a no load on one of my strats to get the neck pickup added to any position it's not.
Rob! Is that P90 a neck or bridge wound pup, also how is the bridge grounded?
Is the P90 rout a modified existing tele rout, would a dog ear P90 work?
Love it! Gives me an idea what to do with my bungled rosewood tele now! I've got an extra strat neck and the guy that made the body made it only 1.5" (I think he was new to building and I didn't know any better!) A shallow P90 just might do the trick along with a switch craft L gibby switch, everything else should fit in the body! Sweet!
Keep up the great work! Would love to hear some sound clips too!
I have several "styrofoam" trees growing in my yard. They look like giant wheatstocks in the fall and winter, but are COVERED in flowers in spring, and over summer they have the most MASSIVE leaves.
Coolest trees to watch ever, they grow more than 10 foot a year.(and about 15-20 the first!)
Rob what the P90 recommendation for a build like that?
yes, removing the carbon off the input lug instead of the ground lug will work in reverse - fully counter-clockwise and the pot/cap are outta the circuit, as you sweep clockwise, the tone cap creeps ing and shunts treble to ground.
make it a dog ear p90!
