    Which do you prefer and why? I never thought much about either. But I started playing/hanging with friends in metal subgenres I normally don't associate with, and fucking everyone has the standard $70 EB Volume Pedal on their boards. To the point of it being ubiquitous. I mostly run...
  2. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Hi there guys, not sure if this is the right place to ask this, but here I go, I have a 81/85 EMG Set that I want to have mounted in one of my guitars, the thing is I just want to have a volume pot, but being a Push-Pull I can select which pickup I can activate, so, no swicth, no tone, just a...

    The volume pot in my RG2610E is frozen. Can anyone tell me what size shaft I need to buy? I had an american sized one and it's too big.

    Where can i find something like this?

    As the title says, it's a bourns pot I have in a LTD. Everything works but the volume pot does nothing. The pickups are always on. It was working fine and I cannot find any issues in the wiring. I just double checked everything comparing it to a Duncan wiring diagram and it's right. My solder...

    Hey guys, I am finishing a fuzz pedal, and I need 1 500k pot for it. I have a B500k, but I need an A, and the way I'm mounting the 2 circuit boards I only want to do it once. And I don't want to have to pay a ton of shipping for 1 pot. I'm hoping you guys have one laying around, and can just...

    Just replaced a push/push pot (old one wasnt popping up smoothly). But the new pot makes a clicking noise when ever its pushed. Unless im not playing anything, if there is no sound coming out of the guitar the pot does not make the clicking noise no matter how many times i press it? BUt if there...

    So I picked up a Tele that is a Baja neck with a Road Worn body. There was some shitty rail pickup in the bridge and when I opened the guitar up I was just left staring for a few moments while I took in what I saw. First the pickup was connected by a stupidly short cable with no solder and...

    I'm currently looking to redesign the electronics of a cheap schecter Blackhawk I bought a while back. I've pretty much decided what I want to do but I'm still torn between putting 1 vol and 1 tone pot or 1 vol pot for each humbucker and building a simple Brian May style treble/mid/bass boost...

    [Fixed] New Schecter KM-7 bad pot (pics/video) I've never owned a push/pull pot before and I think that the one in my KM7 is faulty. I noticed the first few days after I got it that the signal cut out a few times when adjusting the volume but I didn't really notice it again for a week or so...
  11. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I've never done any electrical work on my guitars, aside from replacing my Strat's single coils years ago and all I had to do was copy what was already done. My JEM's 5-way and volume pot completely shit out a couple weeks ago. Not sure how, but something with the 5-way cut the output entirely...

    Something weird happened this evening. I put the guitar down for a brief while, picked it up again, and the volume knob was really tight to turn. It felt like it was about to start grinding against the finis, so I loosened it and took it off. The pot was very difficult to turn, so I used a...

    So, there is a mod I heard about that I'd like to have done with an upcoming pickup swap. Normally, with "stock" wiring... when you roll your volume way back, you lose some treble/highs, even with the tone still at 100%. I heard there's a mod that can prevent this treble loss when the volume is...

    Need some help...trying to fix an earlier fuck up of mine. Rewired my PRSish guitar with a pair of Triple Shot rings and pair of push pull pots. Seems everything is working except when I pull both pots and switch to the neck pup. And then I get no sound. I've double checked the wiring...and as...

    So, I'm currently reteaching myself circuit stuff from a book, but I'd like to get a jump on something. I know that bridging the outside lugs of a pot with a samevalued resistor will halve its value, and will take (roughly) an audio taper pot down to close to a linear, and a linear pot close to...

    So I've seen this a couple places now where people are saying that you get a cleaner and hotter signal with a direct bypass of volume and tone pots. I couldnt find any a/b of this on youtube. Has anyone experimented with this?
  17. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Is there a major difference in the taper between these pots? I just pulled the linear taper Alpha we accidentally installed in favor of an audio taper CTS, and the taper STILL feels pretty aggressive - you can hear it working across the entire range, but it still ramps up awfully fast. Also...

    Here's a good use for this pic again. When I wire pots in, I almost always go from the hot wire on the jack to the center lug on the tone pot and then jump to the volume knob. This guy goes to the volume pot, and makes a jump to the lug w/o the treble bleed resistors on it. When I add my...

    So I just moved my EMG's from one guitar to another, and now the volume pot for the neck PU is having the reversed effect. When I turn up the volume, it turns down, and the other way around. It didn't do this before the switch, and the other pots aren't doing it. What to do?

    I'm looking to implement BFR/JPXI wiring in my RG7620 as I'm adding a CL/LF set and I really like that tonal option on the JPXI that I played in the store. Basically the tone pot needs to get swapped out for a push-pull style. When pushed in, the two humbuckers are in normal parallel...
