Hi, this is my first post here, but I have followed several threads in the past and I know that you guys are incredible and can help me with a little problem. I have followed this mod to the letter, but does not work as it should. Would someone please look this diagram over and tell me if something is off, or changes that need to be made. This also has an option for both humbuckers together. I would like to use a double gang pot 0-50-0 to blend these. Wiring for this would be greatly appreciated.
I have found two discrepancies between audio and drawings. #1 audio: Switch A4 to Vol lug 2; drawing: Switch A4 to Vol lug 1 #2 audio: Switch B4 to vol push-push A1; drawing: Switch B4 to vol p-p A2 I have followed the drawings.
I'm fine with a soldering iron but to know where to connect this to that is waaay above my pay grade. Thanks in advance for any and all help. Jammer
We would be happy to help, but few members are going to be willing to sit through a 5 minute video of your wiring. And, the issue is not with any theoretical guitar in a YouTube video, but with the particular wiring in your guitar which you have.
First and foremost, "does not work as it should" tells others very little about your problems. We cannot begin to solve a problem without first defining it. What, exactly, is not working properly? Are there one or more settings where you have no sound at all?
I understand that you are saying you followed the video to a "T", but again, it's your wiring that apparently has a problem. So, let me suggest that, to proceed, you make up a drawing of the wiring you now have in your guitar, together with describing, as above, what exactly it is that is not operating properly. We will then be able to easily double check your diagram, and to focus in on the specific things that could be causing your issues.
Now that I am sufficiently reprimanded, I will remind you that this is the first post I have ever made. EVER Ok, so it should be obvious that sometimes it is difficult to articulate into words what I am thinking, especially when things like this are tedious and confusing. I do not have the training and/or the experience of you all. And on top of that finding the discrepancies between the audio and drawing of that video, I had no clue which was right. That is why I posted the video, to show that discrepancy as well as mentioning it in the post, thinking someone would watch the video to see for themselves any irregularities. That is why the subject line was Questionable Mod Diagram. I just wanted to know if the diagram was correct.
Thank you frets for the diagram, but it was the last image of the video.
So, all that being said, I don't feel I deserve the condescending attitude I received from newey, even though there was an offer for help. I'm too old to be talked down to like a redheaded stepchild.(You figure that one out) Therefore I am leaving this friendly forum (or so I thought) and taking my dignity with me, and bidding you a final AMF. Adios M F You can figure that one out too.
jammer, if you are still here? If you can just describe what you can of the problem, we might think of something. Other than that, we really can't advise since we don't know anything about what the issues are with your build. The diagram looks OK.
