    So I'm trying to wire up the following pickups and I have this diagram: However, I have this 3 way switch: So going from the diagram that has 4 connectors on each side to mine which has 8 in a row, how would I go about wiring to the switch? I'm just not sure how the 4x2 translates to...

    You may have already read my NGD for this guitar before. But, it has been reborn to a different guitar now, hence "Re-NGD"! My Switch Bluebird Backstory… After having Darth Paul, I did not want another guitar because it was already the ultimate guitar I have always wanted. However, one...

    I was scanning through Facebook Marketplace and I found this interesting guitar. It is not much of a looker, but I found out that it was a one-piece guitar made of resin. So, it's kind of a poor man's Aristides! I don't really need an extra guitar, but it was being sold for an irresistible $100...

    I have a set of 7 string EMG's coming in. There going into an Ibanez RGA7. The guitar has 1 volume pot and an EQ selector switch. I want to wire that switch to kill power from the battery, so I can leave the guitar plugged in and not have to worry about battery life. Will this work? Thanks.

    I have an old Charvel Model 2 that need to be rewired. Sometime in the past 30 some odd years, somebody added some kind of switch to it. I'm not real sure what it does (I guess either a coil tap or phase switch) but it makes it sound real thin and staticy, and it has one of the worst solder jobs...

    PSA - I just went to the Decibel Eleven website as I finished writing this post and talk about luck - they have a clearance sale running and still have the Switch Doctor available, brand new for $150 shipped in the US. Seems like a no-brainer purchase at that price so I grabbed one. I bought...

    Maybe because it was in pieces for 2+ years, but the 5150 won't switch channels. As in, it'll switch if i hold in the button, but then when i release it just goes back to the green channel. Not a massive problem as the green crunch channel with a tube screamer is a weapon of mass destruciton and...

    It's only one humbucker, and on-off switch. If "on", there is signal and no hum. When it's "off", it's humming A LOT. The wiring is super simpel so I have no idea where I did anything wrong?? It's not too different from my one-volume pot wirings in my Jackson RR24 or a couple of other guitars...

    So, I've got an RGIT27FE (dual 707's, 1vol 3-way & killswitch) and a C-7 Hellraiser (dual 707TW's, dual push-pull volumes, 3 way & tone). I love the tapped sound on the 707tw's for cleans and stuff, but I don't love the Hellraiser so much...got it in a trade deal and will probably either sell...

    I have a 3 way blade switch in my Jackson and want to know what connections are being made per position. I have put a continuity tester on it and the way it switches seems off to me. Where can I find a diagram of the internal working of 3 way blades? ETA Where is a good place online to buy...

    The mag/piezo switch on my Parker broke. The wiring in these are pretty complex so I just want to buy a good one and not have to open it up again. Anyone got any recommendations?

    The guy I sold my Splawn to mentioned that he saw a Recto that had its "Solo" function modified to be an FX Loop on/off. Anyone heard or witnessed anything like that before? That'd be a pretty sweet trick to do to my SR50 and Stiletto.

    I bought this switch and had some questions about it. All the wiring diagrams I've seen have the tabs in 2 rows of 4. This one has 8 in one row. Do I alternate each tab for each side?
  14. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    So, as you may know, I picked up a full-size 6505+ amp head a short time ago. I have it hooked to an Avatar Contemporary 212 cabinet. (See photo for jack plate) Hooking it to 4 ohm impedance works just fine. I haven't tried 8 ohm stereo yet, but when I connect it to 16 ohm mono, I get no...

    Reveal trailer was posted yesterday. I'm pretty intrigued and I really hope Nintendo doesn't screw themselves again with lack of 3rd party support among other things. It's an interesting concept. I'm glad that they're still trying to be a console and not an underpowered PC.

    Anybody got one going spare? Got a pair of Quick-Connect Blackout's in my SRC607 but no switch (It had a single 81-7 when I got it).

    I may have to get a new live rig soon and a 5150 is top choice for me (after trying around tons of sounds 95% of all my Kemper profiles are 5150s... hahaha) But I would also need a multieffects board that can switch channels on the 5150. I wouldn't need more than 4 channels on the board (normal...

    I need a bit of help figuring out the best way to do this. It's been a while since I wired anything other than 1 pickup with 1 volume knob and i'm a bit rusty. Guitar in question is my new LTD. I will not be using a tone pot, so I can use some type of switch or a push/pull pot for the blower...
  19. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    So a little background here...since I started playing guitar when I was 14 (now 29) I've exclusively played 7-string. Dabbled with Drop A some, but vast majority has been B standard. There's nothing wrong with it and I'm happy where I'm at, but I've been curious to dabble or try something new...
