    doing my first parts caster. bought one of those new $130 kramer focus strats in teal blue. all the hardware/electronics are junk but thinking of it as $130 for a neck and body to just throw my own parts into I felt it was a good deal for me. Now I'm looking for a wiring diagram slightly...

  3. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    Hi there guys, I have a quick question, wondering if someone knows or have a EMG diagram like the one used on Jim Root's guitar? I mean, 2 humbuckers (active) one volume and the 3 switch blade, I have everything from EMG, the 2 pickups, the volume knob, the switch blade and the output jack, but...

    So, I've decided to go with the Freeway Ultra in my LP with the BKP Rebel Yell bridge and Mississippi Queen neck. The diagram states that the, "neck pickup should be the same magnetic polarity as humbucker's screw coil for hum-cancelling operation in positions 1 and 5." Free-Way 3X3-05...

    I need to knock up a footswitch for a buddy of mine as his got run over in a parking lot and he's thrown it out. Does anyone have the schematic for it or can open up theirs for me and post a few pics? Fuck paying $120 for a new one when I have a drawer of latching footswitches and leds that cost...

  7. Science 101 with Leon
    This is pretty cool... Gliffy - Online Diagram Software and Flowchart Software A free account will get you 5 diagrams. All I needed right now was one, to work out how I'm going to connect-up my PA for my band's acoustic shows, but it was super easy to use, and I may use it again :yesway:
  8. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    Within the last couple months someone here posted a link to a diagram that used a 5 position rotary switch and a Dimarzio 4PDT Switch to get some crazy combinations but leaving straight neck/bridge on the outer positions of the switch. I remember that one of the positions of the rotary was a...

    I'm trying to figure out how to wire my 7620 using a three-way blade, volume, push-pull tone, and a 3-way on/on/on mini switch. DiMarzio neck pickup, Miracle Man bridge. Here's the layout: And a blank diagram: I want the mini switch wired for series (bottom position), split (outer coil...

    In reference to: I've been trying to get one from dimarzio over the past couple of weeks. I sent them proof that I purchased their product. It looked promising at...
  12. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I thought some of you guys might want to try this out, he does get some interesting pickup combinations out of this and I may try this out with my RG550.
  13. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    I'm pretty sure this is going to work as I've planned, but I wanted to double-check against the other wiring gurus… Basically: P90 Series HB Neck Black pegs are where the "slider" is, and the colored pegs are where the tab contacts when the switch is moved. Just a fairly standard...

    I need another wiring diagram... :lol: I'm wiring a pair of Dimarzios, H-H, 3-way with a coil tap on the tone. I found this guy on the SD site (and I know the color chart), but the push/pull is on the volume. +Rep if someone can find me that basic diagram with the P/P on the tone pot. I'll...

    Wirelessly posted (Metal Shop \m/) We have some bad weather coming in, so Comcast decided to pre-emptively stop working. :lol: Since this fucking blows to search for on my phone, can one of you guys grab me a wiring diagram? H-H, 3-way, 1vol 1tone? I'm putting in a Duncan neck and a DiMarzio...

    My new 3-way blade showed up for my Jackson today. Guitar is H-H, with a duncan (neck) and a DiMarzio (bridge). Go!
  17. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I've got a DS7 and an AN7 I want to put in a 7620. The guitar has a DM-30 3-way lever switch. Can anyone highlight in this pic where the correct cables need to go? I'm useless at this stuff, so assume I know nothing. The switch is one of these: The pots and jack are already wired up, and...

    Specifically, one that doesn't use Ibanez' patented "million contact points of fun" 5-way switches?
  19. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I just swapped out a buddy's Emgs for a set of Duncans. By doing the install i now have a free set of 81 85's i want to drop in my ibanez. The problem is i can't find a diagram anywhere. All the emg's i've dealt with have been the solderless system(this is not). I have 1 volume 1 tone that i...

    I had one from Shannon/Mesh when I got the guitar, but I've no idea what the hell I did with it and don't want to hose my piezo, or trace wires for two hours. :lol: I think the KG-Mod is Kevan's crazy wiring that makes it so you don't need to switch jacks. I have to get these fucking blackouts...
