  1. 1) Yes 2) No. Thanks for the idea, but I am...

    1) Yes
    2) No. Thanks for the idea, but I am well beyond that now. I initially had a terrible hum that left the instrument incapable of producing a pleasant musical tone, which was my reason for...
  2. I'm just tuning the strings and will go plug it...

    I'm just tuning the strings and will go plug it in once they're tuned. The one thing I can tell you is that there is capacitance across both caps now, so I have good reason to suspect it will be...
  3. It's a good thing I can laugh at myself

    I took pictures at every point along the way, but the scale was such, especially given the crowded nature of the work (there are three jumpers plus five wires soldered to the switch alone--even...
  4. Thanks for expressing the understanding. The one...

    Thanks for expressing the understanding. The one ironic issue that also comes from your discussion offered, though, is the question of what I'm dealing with. That Gretsch is a beautiful and...
  5. Alright, now this is something that could save me...

    Alright, now this is something that could save me a bunch of time. It never occurred to me that I could slacken the strings enough to slide the pick guard with all its attachments out (in fact, I...
  6. That's a truly wonderful idea. The problem is,...

    That's a truly wonderful idea. The problem is, that as I mentioned, I have a lot of distracting stuff going on, and I am far more readily set up to cut through the guitar than to do a decent job of...
  7. Hello, Leo: As I tried to explain in a...

    Hello, Leo:

    As I tried to explain in a response to another helpful soul, I think the problem may be that in this make-believe tele, the cavity is not quite large enough for the wiring and the...
  8. Thanks, Terry. I will apply your recommendation...

    Thanks, Terry. I will apply your recommendation when I get to that point. I don't think putting pictures up will help. The schematics are straightforward and certainly not part of the problem, and...
  9. Thanks, Mick. That is the basis of the whole...

    Thanks, Mick. That is the basis of the whole problem, as I have outlined it in my detailed response to Dave H. I can't test anything on this other than the pups, the bridge block, and the output...
  10. I thank all who have responded but am responding...

    I thank all who have responded but am responding to you because you didn't like my idea of cutting into the back of the guitar. I'll put it this way. I am very confident of my soldering and...
  11. Thanks for your prompt reply. Boy, did this get...

    Thanks for your prompt reply. Boy, did this get me thinking about a lot of stuff. It is really too much for me to include in detail in this context, so I will try to keep somewhat brief and...
  12. Where to look for a problem with new wiring producing no sound

    Hello:

    I just rewired a knock-off hollow-body Tele. It had gotten wonderful reviews online, but when I got it home, it was just terrible. I have to wonder whether the manufacturer and family and...
  13. Thanks for the input. I didn't trust the...

    Thanks for the input. I didn't trust the conductive glue, either, so I soldered all the joints. I figured that would assure the electrical continuity of all the tape and maybe give some rigidity to...
  14. Thank you very much. That's all I needed to...

    Thank you very much. That's all I needed to know. Now I'm rarin' to go.

  15. Well, you asked for it! I've attached pics of...

    Well, you asked for it! I've attached pics of where I am at just now (I will add on as I go). In addition to the guitar, I put up pictures of the switches I wired just because I find it amusing to...
  16. That's interesting and plainly answers my...

    That's interesting and plainly answers my question. I had it backward in my mind. I was wondering why the hardware that had not needed to be grounded to the wood before the conductive paint now...
  17. Guitar Hummed When Bridge or Control Knobs Touched--I fixed it, but I don't get it!

    My son, Dan, got new pickups (two humbuckers) for his Epiphone SG. As I had to rewire it for him, anyway, I thought if we used stacked, concentric pots, he could have individual volume and tone...
  18. [QUOTE=Danelectron;210248] I had no idea how far...

    I hope I like the cap switch, because it was no fun to wire up. That was the first new idea I came across in working this out, but in the end I'm more excited about the bridge pickup selector...

    I'll be happy just to see it get into drive!

    Are you trying to tell me something looks fishy?:p

  21. Thanks. I put up my schematic as an attachment. ...

    Thanks. I put up my schematic as an attachment. It's pretty busy for the size that I can put up, but I think you can make it out. I've got most of the wiring done I can do outside of the...
  22. I came up with 47 settings that I believe are...

    I came up with 47 settings that I believe are unique. Then it occurred to me that if I used an on-off-on, DPDT switch instead of the SPST I planned on using just to turn the bridge on and off that I...

    Thanks. I looked it up, but I couldn't find any schematics, only photo images that made it hard to tell what was wired to what.

    In the end, though, I've got enough other stuff going on with...

    Good guess! It's a Strat-like Ibanez. The down side is, that unlike the Strat, everything is mounted through holes in the wooden face of the instrument rather than on a pick guard. I have to...

    Thanks for the response. Turns out the wiring's gotten busy enough I'm just running everything off the pickup selector set-up to the single volume and tone control. If there's something I don't...

    You are a riot. Are you sure you should not be on a stand-up comic page rather than a guitar page?



    I think I've considered just about everything in the book. I looked at the 5-way switch,...

    Terry--Oops! I tried to present this making clear that I didn't know or mean to guess the answer. Sorry if I offended. It's interesting to hear you tried a right handed guitar for years and it...

    Those look crazy. I've never heard of them before. I was intrigued by one of the electric 12-strings by Agile. Where are they made? I've also had in mind a semi-hollow bodied Tele (I played one...
