I've got an €pi Les Paul Special 1 p90's, with the wrap over bridge.
I have found an Allen wrench that almost fits the set screw on the bridge/saddle. The one that came with the guitar is too small. I got the bridge closer to the nut, but she still rings sharp.
I've got what's probably a simple question for all you guitar gurus out there. I've googled the living daylights out of the question and haven't been able to find a definitive answer.
So, lets start with my guitar:SSS
Squier Strat SE
SSS Rose Mariposa Vintage Pick Ups
My Strat was sounding normal in the "middle" p/u position, but neck and bridge sounded about 1/2 volume and very thin by comparison. I bought a pre-made wiring harness from "ToneManGuitar". It came with new pots, new tone cap, new out-put jack and new 5 way switch.
While installing new...
Just bought an Epi LP with 2 p90's,
1 vol. 1 tone, I read somewhere that to
change to 50's wiring only involved
moving 1 wire from volume pot to the
tone pot or visa versa.
Would someone please enlighten me?
The "Audio In" jack on my First Act MA214 bass amp works fine. However,
Plugging into the "Instrument In" jack yields a hum and no guitar sound.
I'm thinking that the Instrument In jack is at fault. If it is the jack can I just replace it with a regular guitar input jack?
Any help is...
Planning on putting new p'ups using the "cheat method"
On my fully hollowbodied Epiphone Joe Pass.
So after I've clipped the wires on the stock p'ups
Is there a way to test the clipped wires that are still in
the guitar for hot and ground with a VOM? :hmm:
...On Agile "Les Paul" guitars.
The prices seem pretty good for what you allegedly get.
Price wise the 2 I'm looking at are less than an Epiphone Studio and have much nicer accoutrements than the Epi.
One of them even comes with stainless steel frets.
I am looking at the Al3001 & the Al3010...
Thinking of taking my 16 year old Epi Joe Pass in to have the frets leveled, crowned and polished. I'll also have a complete set-up done at the same time.
The frets have very little wear so I'm thinking that the fret job won't require anything extraordinary.
As for the set-up I'd like for...
What's going to fill up all this empty?
New die cast sealed tuners
Rose Mariposa hand wound pick ups
New bridge with full size block and bent stainless steel saddles
New 250k CTS audio pots
Oak Grigsby 5 way switch
New cloth covered wire
What I'll do for a wiring scheme:
Hi, I drew this up and was hoping to get some input.
The pots are shielded by being bolted to the foil on the pick guard.
Comments and suggestions encouraged.
I have a Squier Strat SE and am installing new everything under the pick guard and I am going to do the following: Wire up so that 2nd tone knob works for both middle and bridge.
Install a separate tone cap on each tone pot, these will be 2 different values 0.022 and 0.047 so that neck will...
