I'm excited good luck with that bro

ROUGH DEMOS, IF YOU CARE TO LISTEN???
I posted up a couple of rough demos(mistakes and all ) that I just made
of a couple of my original songs. I had a lot of trouble with the KORG I was using and ended up dumping my mix out the headphone jack back inot my PC where I mixed it. The Audio is a not the best, so please forgive me. I hope you like them...

jonesin' is full of sick greasy Strat licks and the Indiana Method is a finger style instrumental with a groove. Both songs were recorded on my 03 Blue Strat bridge/ middle setting with just a bit of Tone rolled on for some Mojo. I was plugged directly into the KORG, dry on jonesin' lot's of delay on the IM

I have some heavier jimi style stuff recorded but wanted to post these up first...

The 5 Strat Tones...
Here is my 03' Fender American Strat with stock pickups and a .022 Sprague HYREL Paper In Oil Tone cap. Tone control is just cracked open enough o add a little warmth from the cap 7-8 on the knob. I am plugged directly into a KORG D-12 Digital recorder, no amp, no tubes just a little room reverb in the mix.

Here are the switch settings in order of sound clips...
1. bridge

2. bridge/middle

3. middle

4. middle/neck

5. neck

Sound clip of 5 Strat Tones on Entertonement

I would like to hear your comments...

thanks, jonesy

re: Jonesyblues Custom Shop @Jonesyblues.com

dave it sounds very good... the bridge unit sounds warm and twangy ( did you roll the tone knob down a bit? ), nice. Perhaps the neck unit sounded a bit dissapointing to me... not enough mojo compared to my strat neck tone ( BKP Apache pickup w/ AIII polepieces and low h formvar windings). All in all very good.

Thanks for the input H., yeah I had the Tone cracked open just enough to let the "mojo-filter" do it's thing, when DJ listened to it he actually picked the neck pu as his favorite sound I would love to hear some sounds clips of your Strat to compare? Did you listen to the Jimi Mojo clip that is all neck pickup

Sorry Josh, IDK what op with that, I had a couple of people here in the US tell it did not work for them, but for most it has worked.. hmm. The green button plays file, and if you click on yellow box with file name it should open that clip and show details then start playing automatically?

Does the link even take you to the site or no?

Sound Clips of 4 Way Tele Mod
These clips were recorded with my Tele that has the Fender SCN pu's in it, 1950's Sprague .015 Bumble Bee cap and the 4 Way Switch Mod. It is also a "Top loader" so IMO it has a more warm open sound to start with than many of the String Through the Back Teles I have owned.

All Clips were recorded with guitar plugged directly into KORG, just a bit of Room Reverb and the Tone control is cracked open just enough to add a little "Warmth" to the pickups. I use Ernie Ball Regular Slinky's 10-46, and a Fender Heavy Pick. Volume was set the same on all clips, so you are hearing exact sound level of each pu setting.

All 4 sound clips were recorded in this order...

1. Bridge

2. Bridge/Neck parallel

3. Neck

4. *Bridge and Neck in Series (like humbucker)

Thanks for listening and I probably should have recorded a Country clip. Oh Well? I would like to hear your comments on these sound clips?
peace, jonesy

4 WAY TELECASTER SWITCH MOD

I have had a few guys ask about the 4 way wiring since I posted the sound clips
that I recorded with Lil' Keef, so I thought I would post it up here for anyone that would like to try it on their Tele. Grounding the cover of the neck pickup and cutting the "jumper" from the cover to the negative pu wire is very important. Usually if someone has a problem with it not working, it is because of that. All Negative wires from neck pu go to switch and the ground wire from the cover goes to the back of the volume pot. If you have any questions just give me a bump and I will walk you through the install

BESIDES WIRING HARNESS'S & TONE CAPS I ALSO DO LEVEL CROWN AND POLISH, BONE NUTS, SET-UP, CUSTOM MODS, REPAIRS & INSTALL NEW PICKUPS.

Had a few local guys bring in there guitars to have some work done so I thought I would take some pics. Two MIM Strats, one USA Peavey and My Blue American 03' in the case



The MIM with the Diamond Plate was done by one of my students. I helped him with the wiring and pu's and he did they body and re-fin work. It was actually originally purple just like the other MIM Strat in the pics, kind of a before and after shot for you.

Mail me your Bolt on neck and I will do a Level, Crown and Polish on it for about $90 (+ S&H back to you $15?) depending on condition and amount of wear.

Hand Fitted Bone Nut will run $40-50 depending on what guitar it is, includes removing old nut and installing new genuine Bone nut.

Set-ups at my shop run about $40, that includes clean and oil Fretboard, adjust truss rod, inspect nut & frets, set-up action and intonation, float vintage trem.

Floyd Rose equipped guitars will run you around $60 for the same set-up work.

I also install New Pickups and get Dealer Pricing on Dimarzio, Gibson and Fender Products. The Dimarzio 36th Anniver. PAF's have been one of my favorites DP103 & DP223 Vintage Output, 4 wires for tone mods Black Coils $175 a Pair, includes S&H to USA. Call for Pricing on other Pickups and colors/cover options???

NEED PICKUPS FAST??? On all New Pickups, Gibson, DiMarzio, Fender etc. I will call warehouse to see if they are in stock, and if you order on Monday I will Guarantee that your New Pickups will ship out to you my that Friday. So that means from 5 days from when you order your New Pickups will be on the way to you.

DISCOUNTS FOR ALL MLPF MEMBERS AS USUAL I WILL HOOK YOU GUYS UP SO JUST LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU NEED.

THANKS & PEACE, jonesy

I see you have this same exact post in the wiring library, my answers may vary from what you get there, so take it all with a grain of salt.

1. Wire I use is, 22 g solid, 22g stranded & braided Gibson style wire.
wiring methods vary.

2. CTS pots are what I always use and find them to operate smooth and function properly.

3. Linear pots taper off fast and are usually only used for tone. I use audio taper pots for everything.(try Google for more details)

4. You have master volume and Tone, look at the way your Tone Cap is tied into circuit??? There are about 4 different ways to wire cap into circuit, Original Fender style(See Tele or P-Bass wiring) Gibson 50's, Gibson Modern and the way yours is shown. Your choice on that one

Not sure why your order is taking so long in the mail, could be customs delay etc?

thanks for the reply, btw i have recieved that cap and bleed kit this morning.

what style of circtuit in your oponion would work best with that cap you sold to me? do i wire my new circuit the same as my current one and change the way the cap is tied in? OR try a different style of circuit?

i want your opinion as you got so much expertise in this department.

what style of circtuit in your oponion would work best with that cap you sold to me? do i wire my new circuit the same as my current one and change the way the cap is tied in? OR try a different style of circuit?

i want your opinion as you got so much expertise in this department.
Well how about start with, use this wiring diagram which is a lot like the one you have. Then if you want to tinker around you can change the way the cap connects to pots. If you go to my profile pics here at MLPF look in the one with wiring diagrams. if you study the diagrams I mentioned you can see how caps connect. Just look at one side of a standard LP wiring diagram. There are differences in Tone, small variations as the 50's is said to be brighter, the modern more warm etc. That is all waiting for you to be explored, then you will know with your own 2 ears vs someone telling you how it will sound. Have fun and I am always here if you need help or get stuck.



BTW glad your order arrived today
