    Simplified 2 conductor to 4 conductor conversion for Custombuckers?

    Yes you can do it. Best way is to use a very thin solid core (e.g. wire wrap) wire and wrap/wind it close along the braided shield.

    And not so funny... A neighborhood crime. Murder investigation goes slow. The media is like a fever. Heat starts to build up. The people out in the neighborhoods get scared, and they start calling their city councilmen. The councilmen panic - that's what politicians, do, basically, is panic -...

    Guy dates girl. And trying to be funny cracked a joke about blondes. And wondering if there was such a thing as a feminist joke, even a funny one. "Oh, There are lots of feminist jokes," she said. "You know why men give names to their penises?" "No. Why?" "Cause they don't want a complete...

    498T resistance differences (two guitars, very different, 8.0k vs 13.9k)

    Ah, thanx for the info. Well, if I split a 13,9 Kohm humbucker in two and get a screw coil with 8K and a slug coil with 5,9K reading, this sure is unusual. I found that kind of DCr offset/mismatch with quite a few different humbuckers and brands, e.g. Tesla (Kr) and suspected a production failure.

    498T resistance differences (two guitars, very different, 8.0k vs 13.9k)

    Talking of coil SPLIT - as with most, not to say each and every humbucker, those two coils have different windings hence DCr readings. So it could as well be with a 13K HB to read 8K on one coil. In most cases this would be the screw coil, which tapping could confirm also.

    2018 Epiphone Les Paul Custom Peter Frampton

    This one performs really well. Before and first I tried an original Gibson P100, a failure. Now with this aftermarket slightly overwound Korean P90 all I had to do was reduce coil wire to calibrate this pickup and pair it to the 57-Classic humbuckers. And connect it with a three wire cable for...

    2018 Epiphone Les Paul Custom Peter Frampton

    Here you can see the latest incarnation of a 2018 Epiphone Les Paul Custom "Peter Frampton" with a P90 in the middle position - and new switching system with a British NSF 2x3 Freeway switch à la Jimmy Page. Since I got this guitar I was never satisfied with the original humbucker trio - too...

    Congrats! It's a mystery to me that there is not one single statement in this whole forum to confirm the following fact: there is almost no difference in TONE comparing one piece vs three piece bodies or guitars with one piece vs three piece maple tops. In my workshop many years ago a customer...
