  4. EMG Solderless Pickup Wiring

    Electric Guitar
    Hi all, I recently picked up an awesome Jackson V where someone added in a set of solderless EMGs (81/85). However I recently noticed: When I’m on the bridge pickup, the volume pot works correctly however the tone does adjust anything. When I’m on the neck pickup the Tone pot controls the...
  5. P90 in a humbucker - suggestions??

    Electric Guitar
    Thinking of changing the bridge pickup in my Eastman El Rey. The neck had a really nice coil tapped humbucker, think I'd like the big single coil sound at the bridge. What have you tried, what do you like?
  6. Pickup Winding and Re-winding

    Guitar Building/Mods/Repair
    Anyone here wind pickups? Been looking at Arduino and making a pickup winder... seems simple and cheap enough to build. Programming... never tried Arduino, but seems to be a good group/forum for it so, should be able to figure it out. Lots of free scripts out there to copy/paste. I have a few...

    Hey guys, I'm using this wiring diagram: 2H_5WSPL_1V_1T.pdf I'm using a 500k tone pot, but the pdf doesn't specify the value. Everything except the tone pot works great - the coil splitting, the hum bucking, etc. The tone pot has no discernable effect for 95% of its travel except very near...

    Guitar Building/Mods/Repair
    So... almost done my Frankencaster... body was found in the trash, old '90s Yamaha RGX220. Pickups I tested on the multimeter and seemed to be ok so kept those. Rest of the pots and switches were trashed... push/pull was broken on one, other was rusty. I used a diagram from Seymour Duncan...
  11. Wiring Issues

    Guitar Building/Mods/Repair
    I have an old '60s Kawai/Winston that's giving me some grief. Nothing worked when plugged in. Has a pair of single coils, big fat ones, 3-way toggle, volume, tone and input jack. Hollowbody so no rear access, had to de-solder the neck pickup to get all the wiring pulled out to test. Pots were...
  12. P90 and Humbucker p'ups

    Electric Guitar
    I'm thinking of making my own guitar, and I decided on using a p90 hum bucker setup. If I were to use that setup, which pickup should I put where. It should also be noted the pickups are an SD phat cat and the Fernandez sustainer humbucker style

  15. There's something wrong with my Kent Armstrong Convertible P90 bridge pickup - and it sounds awesome

    Electric Guitar
    I recently decided to swap out the stock humbuckers in my Korean Tokai Love Rock with some humbucker-sized P90's. I ordered a set of cream coloured Kent Armstrong (KA) Convertible P90's and a set a BG-Pups Pure 90's in Black/Chrome. I figured I'd try'em both out, and hold onto or sell the ones I...
