Open Discussion / Question about Strat series wiring
« on: Today at 03:04:56 PM »
I have a set of 3 Lipstick pickups for a Strat that I want to use in a cheap body that I got used. Since they're Lipsticks I'd like to do some form of serial wiring because that's what Danelectro did in the middle position of their two-lipstick guitars. I have a Danelectro Baritone and love that sound.

But also I'd like to do use a "Megaswitch" because I don't like the middle pickup by itself on Strats, position 3 of the switch should be neck & bridge.

And I'd like to just have Volume and Tone plus a Bass Contour knob aka G&L PTB wiring (https://tonefiend.com/guitar/two-band-ptb-tone-control-useful-easy-cheap-awesome/). I have (had) that on several guitars and don't want to do without it for serial wiring.

In short:
- all standard single pickup or parallel positions
- except position 3 (bridge & neck together)
- use a switch or push/pull knob to choose between parallel or serial wiring
- 5-way pickup switch but not more than one additional switch
- 1 Volume
- 1 Tone
- Bass Contour

I'm at a loss here on wiring because all diagrams I can find are for middle pickup by itself and with the typical Strat 1 Volume, 2 Tone.
Most diagrams I can find online for serial wiring have some sort of "bridge & mid parallel in series with neck" or some additional blend pot.
Is it not possible to just have:
- bridge alone
- bridge & middle
- bridge & neck
- middle & neck
- neck alone
all the combined positions either parallel or serial, depending on the position of the switch?

Thank you very much!

Awesome!
Do you know that "Fett" is the German word for "Fat" but also means anything fom "thick" to "bold" to "Da bomb"?!

Wow. That was quick.

I was asking about the Tonebender because I recently built a 2-in-1, Silicon Fuzz Face & your Silicon Tonebender, which I had never built before for some reason. And I love it! A lot of fuzzes are useless on the first 75% of the gain range, but this is great all along, dirty overdrive to full on fuzz, and so simple to build.
Good to have the smaller version, too. Thanks!

Thanks.
Maybe these two suppliers just aren't offering them anymore. Will have to find another one then.

The CFH is a very hacky effort. It's just a static SHO with clipping diodes and a tone control.

Sounds cool. Would that be a 1590A Grease Gun?

The Sparkplug with all external pots, oh yes!!!!

Also: what's the CFH from the projects page? Your own design or based on something?

(Also, on a side note: how about shrinking your silicon Tonebender to 1590A size?)

Does anyone know if Alpha is discontinuing these regular 9mm pots?

Some of the usual shops here in Europe (Musikding and UK Electronic) haven't had them for months.
I just saw that there will be a lot of new 1590A projects, so I should stock up.

« on: October 30, 2019, 02:07:47 AM »
Boss man doesn't seem very demanding, "Big Muff" is enough, so he now has what he wants. Maybe you should build some other fuzz now - it will be a nice surprise and your friend might appreciate that.
