    Hey guys, I play old school Death Metal, but more of the rock side. Bright, sharp. For me it's always been important to be faithful as much as possible to what was available in the late 80s/early 90s in order to recreate the sound of this era. With that in mind, my main rig is a BC Rich ST-III...

    Hello All, I am new to the world of modding (and also still new to guitar in general), and was looking for help upgrading my middle my pickup. A couple months back, I purchased an Ibanez Jem Jr (HSH setup) as a secondary guitar that I can upgrade over time. I did a bunch of research and just...

    This custom made guitar is more than 30 years old. There is not bolt on neck. The whole thing is single piece. I'm planning to repaint it. I've checked the components with a multimeter. All 3 pickups reads about 11K Ohm. The pots are 100K B type. Do I need to go on with these pickups?? or is...

    Original spec A5 magnets in a custom stagger. The neck and middle are clear and bell like. The bridge has more output than usual to alleviate some of the piercing highs and better match the output in the set. The bridge pickup includes a baseplate. I can include a complete black pickguard with...

    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...

    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?

    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...

    I was recently surprised to hear that the founder of John Anthony Guitars who wound a pickup for me earlier in 2018 had passed away: From his website: "Baytone Pickups were the creation of my husband John ( Anthony Blakey) of John Anthony Guitars. They became highly acclaimed stringed...

    Changing pick ups on an old archtop hollowbody but there are no pick up cavities, the old pick ups were attached directly to the wood using a sticky foam pad. Any suggestions on which pickups would work well for this? Any advice on the foam would be appreciated as well. Thanks

    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...

    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...

    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

    Hi there, I'm making a guitar and I was wondering what type of pickups/pickup combinations I should use. I'm fairly new to guitar pickups and I was wondering which combination would be best for me. I play a lot of rock, punk, grunge and occasionally metal and blues and I'm really looking for...

    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...
