I can finally see well enough to drop some Creamery "Alt 88"Jaguar pickups into my Custom spec Fender "US Original '60's" Jaguar. I'm wiring them up with a "Johnny Marr" schematic, and I'm especially looking forward to testing out the additional "neck and bridge in series" combination.
Soldering up a "modern" wiring circuit for my Wilko Johnson Fender Telecaster
A subtle restoration and revoicing of my old 1998 Fender Nashville Telecaster. Finally - it's more of a TELECASTER - rather than a Stratocaster with a couple of Telecaster pickups. What's more... it rocks!
Fitting a neck pickup, custom-cut all-red scratchplate, and chrome control plate to my Wilko Johnson Fender Telecaster
Fitting a custom tone circuit on my Nashville Telecaster. Accommodating a neck/bridge pickup combination for the middle (3) switch position, and also incorporating a Fender TBX tone unit.
Hotter pickups usually require a little dialling-back, to get them into "Vintage" territory. But I think I'm going to need a "Treble Bleed" modification to keep the sound bright.
Building a modified wiring circuit for my Gold-leafed hardtail Stratocaster. Wiring up some Fender Vintage Noiseless pickups, with 500k pots and a K40Y-9, 0.1µF tone capacitor.
There's a lot to learn, (so this might be a long post). I want to try and specify a wiring circuit specifically for the Fender Vintage Noiseless pickups I'll be using on my Gold Hardtail Stratocaster.
I'd originally intended to fit out the 50's Stratocaster with Bareknuckle, "Apache" single coils, and had sourced them before I got the inspiration to make the Hank Marvin connection. The pickups seem to be a little bit overwound from the norm - so I'm going to hook them up using a wiring modification which should hopefully bring out a little more of their celebrated character.
With the Precision stripped down to its' component parts, I can now begin to rebuild the guitar, using some upgrade components to transform it into the 1957 replica it never quite managed to be, before.
