Another circuit

Phase + Series/Paralel + 3 Way PU selector

Oh and I'm working on something new, think 4 way blade switch, Lace Alumintone PUs, fixed bridge and GraphTech Ratio Tuners . . . getting close to being able to show . . . something.

2 and 3 way switches for single coil switching


A question led to drawing out the schematic for switching 2 single coils with a 2 & 3 way slide switch . . . here it is.

A better? picture


Well here she is in natural light . . . the quilting in the pick guard just doesn't seem to want to be photographed well from ANY angle though . . . . this was the best of the bunch.

All's good . . . . . .

Well the electronics are still subject to revision but here she is . . .

The pick guard contains an (unintentional) Esher like joke though. Better picktures once the weather lets up here.

Changing out the pick guard was relatively easy once I figured how the screw holes lined up . . . the only 'problem' was 2 solder joints on the rotary switch 'broke' . . . bad soldering on my part I guess. I first thought I had a ground fault on the bridge PU as it barely made any sound . . . turns out the grond lead AND the hot lead came off the switch. The ground was an easy fix but I initially soldered the hot to the WRONG PIN . . . and was wondering why it was so clean (no solder on it what so ever) when I did it . . . it was only after the PU still failed the tap test that I figured that one out . . . .

OK it's NOT a guitar but . . . it holds guitars


After 2 years . . .  yes I actually looked up when I originally purchased the first pieces for this . . . it's done. The guitars have a place to hang and the light takes care of a dark corner in the living room. But now I have to clean up the case next to it ... ... ... sigh ...
