It's not obvious how. I doubt that it can be done with that switch because it would mess up the serial/parallel switching - a common tone pot would tie the hot output wires together and prevent serial connection.
Seems to be limited to either master tone, or dedicate-tone-to-specific-pickup...
Funnily enough I had exactly the same (false?) memory, but internet is only showing me photos of a conventional slug/screw today (maybe DP-103 - which didn't exist in 1984), so I dunno?
I've got the 15kΩ 7H dual hex pickup in there now, and I do think it's better at LAD neck tone than the 8.3kΩ...
One year. One $#!^&||\|@ year.
In dribs and drabs over this year:
Put Donlis Ivory Hex Pole Piece Ceramic humbuckers along with Donlis chrome rings in the old Strat copy. Really well made pickups, look and sound the part. Tonerider Pure Vintage bridge in the middle (A5/A3 combo)...
At this distance I'd tend to think most of the difference belongs to the neck (for an interminable list of reasons). Many threads here about tone following the neck. My single experience, bright guitar / dark guitar, swapped the necks, tone goes with the neck.
Interesting. Paul Gilbert has...
Rhetorical question - why does the solid body electric guitar even exist?
Completely disagree on so many levels, pickup microphony is a niche interest, like moustache grooming or fixed gear bicycles. "Complex" is not a synonym for "preferable", particularly in context of electric...
Picking up only on "most people" - strongly disagree microphonic pickups are beneficial for the majority - there's an excellent reason that nearly all pickups are potted these days.
Back when unpotted pickups were common, you had to keep your double boiler handy. I'll echo the other poster...
Well it's a question of taste. I personally don't agree, but you might.
Amongst other effects, putting a big lump of ferromagnetic alloy (AlNiCo magnet) next to a coil raises the inductance, moving the resonant frequency of the pickup down. The conductive alloy also provides a medium for eddy...
Glad you worked it out.
Mod #4 was attaching the series/parallel switching to a volume pot, not a tone pot, so it need a little massaging to work with a tone pot, couldn't be copied exactly as was.
Anyway, all ends well.
Yes, similar thought when first saw AZ - Ibanez rotated out some of their older designs and freshened them up a little.
I think I understand the implication in the OP. If so, when I saw those guitars I thought they were influenced by early '80s Ibanez, rightly or wrongly.
Edit: Not that it's...
Sounds like both ends of the track are grounded, and capacitor is connected to wiper. Thus highest resistance presented to capacitor is when the wiper is at middle of the track (125kΩ at middle given 500kΩ pot (250kΩ||250kΩ)).
Is one track lug touching something it shouldn't? (Braid...
Electrosmash has the circuit - EMG81 Pickup Analysis.
Pretty easy to whip up on veroboard, if you are modifying components anyway.
Are you really after differential - with one coil hanging off inverting, other coil hanging off non-inverting?
Or would simple onboard buffer do?
Nice one! That trick with the coil junctions - neat when someone goes off-script with standard components and comes up with something interesting.
Me either, never really bother with them now, only use auto-tap to match adjacent single coil H-S-H / H-S-S.
Also generally like to have...
I know it's not as fun as buying new parts, but grub screws held firmly in soft jaws and a bit of attention with 4" grinder would sort that out.
Are Strat Plus offset saddles still 4-40 grub screws? If so, you can also buy 4-40 grub screws in whatever length you need to get them below the...
Parallel will be brighter and a little lower output, so heading more towards a single coil sound.
Positions should be interchangeable. At first glance, just swap terminal 4 & 5 on every pole to flip the neck series/parallel selection.
OK playing along, almost this:
But physically spin one of the pickups 180°, so that positions are actually as below. (Assuming stock SD magnetic polarity.)
Bridge & Neck outer coils parallel (humbucking)
Bridge & Neck humbuckers
Bridge & Neck inner coils parallel...
Gave this entirely too much thought, but:
Donlis Ivory Hex Pole Piece Ceramic Magnet Electric Guitar Humbucking Pickup Wax Potted - $28 for giving your old Strat copy a Dave Murray makeover, really well made pickups, look and sound the part.
Based on this text description, I don't think you've got an STL-2, you've got a stacked humbucker.
I suspect you've described:
black wire to signal
red/white ??? joined isolated ???
green/shield to ground
If you had an STL-2, there'd be three wires:
white - one coil end
red - coil tap...
(Same, was expecting more zero.)
Zero. Bridge humbucker, cable, cascaded triodes into master volume preamp, some sort of power amp, 25W Greenback style speaker(s) in open or closed cabinet, done.
But let's go one.
Block logo Phase 90 before preamp (R28 for stronger phase and more distortion).
Another thing our baseplates have in common - they're black. Just to throw another completely unsubstantiated theory out there - wonder if black missed an underside finishing step relative to other finishes?
Is your '87/88 Floyd chrome by any chance?
May have to remain in the...
Ah! Now you've confused me! (Easily done.)
I bought one maybe fifteen years ago second hand, in box, abandoned project.
Grid dot pattern on base plate.
Screw collar arm.
