Re: New Bigsby Day. 1957RI Black Beauty
The set up on my LPR7 Black Beauty is
1) Pickup selection on Rhythm, the top volume and tone controls the neck pickup (I think it is BurstBucker 1).
2) When the selection is in the middle position, the bottom volume and tone controls the middle pickup (BB1) and the bridge pickup (BB3??); I read that the middle pickup is connected out of phase.
3) When in Treble, the bottom volume and tone controls the bridge pickup. There is no other combination.
I was a bit disappointed as I felt there was less flexibility since there is no neck / bridge combination. I also read that other LP BB owners with three pickups re-routed their wiring to control each pickup with the volume and then only one master tone knob. Then others have installed coil-split knobs to cpntrol on/off for the pickups to enable more tone variety. I also read people just disconnected the middle pickup altogether. Anyone out there can share their experience on any of these set ups?
I was slightly disappointed, but it plays and sounds geat.
