To get a better idea of what you're dealing with, is this pretty much the guitar you have? (I realize there are several color options).

If it is, then the pickguard really has no bearing on grounding or shielding, so that's irrelevant, and the control cavity doesn't have the typical telecaster metal panel that the pots and switch are mounted to. I'm guessing the wiring/grounding is more like a Les Paul than a typical Tele. That changes things, and is a key piece to know before moving forward.
thats the exact model down to the colour, yes.

Note, it occured with the stock pickups too, as I put one back in to rule that out. So I dont think it was a pickup microphonic issue.

Super wierd....

after taking everything apart and re-doing everything I can only conclude there must have been an earth loop somewhere.
Ive added another ground between the pots and the "body" (being copper foil shielded...)

Annoyingly it was even doing it with just one pickup, straight to the out jack with the bridge ground earthed at the output jack too. Super wierd.

Did you try checking for ground continuity between pots and the bridge hardware?

I wonder if the new pickups might be microphonic somehow.

Yes I replaced the bridge ground. There is continuity

Ive also just removed the pots (wired the hot directly to the output) and its doing the same, annoyingly

its so wierd.

Hi all

Just incase anyone here messes with guitars

I have a Squier Paranormal telecaster thinline with the jazzmaster pickups
I swapped the stock units out for Pure Vintage 65s and replaced the switch, and pots (CTS)
Also I added copper shielding tape all around

Now the issue I get is when I have it plugged in when I touch any metal work, it creates a static "pop" type sound
To me this is a grounding issue but I cannot figure it out
Ive had the guitar apart 3 times, rewired it, changed the switch

The only thing I havent done is change the pots again which I could. process of elimination I guess
Im loathed to beleive the pickups are "bad" inherently but I guess that could be a thing

Note, Ive tried other amp, cables etc.

Any ideas?

appreciate the effort but thats just a stereo pan as in ping pong, not a LFO / rotary delay

Doesnt need to be a DIY project
Wondering if anyone knows of a pedal that does stereo delay auto-pan
This is not ping pong (which is just back and forth at a set "width" between two amps) but a gradual rotary panning across the stereo field?

I have a little fender mustang headphone amp thing that has this effect and I think its awesome. Would like to know if any pedals do it?


Whilst this is totally awesome in its own right, for anyone wanting to recreate the SiameseDream era in the meantime, this guy smashes (pun intended) it out the park. The lead sound video is bang on.

Just to let everyone know, the Flanger? and Ring Stinger are out as of the 19th May
I had a small hand in these and can say they are an engineering marvel


so, this is sick, hey

Super cool!  8)

I don't see the trimmer on the layout.  Is that for the LED?

Yeah just a CLR trim for led brightness

I have a feeling there will be multiple Queefs around here.. lol

Great build man! I am going to attempt to etch a board tomorrow so I can get on this Lizard train.

Get on the bandwagon :)

hehe dont tempt it. This was all for the pure joy. Seriosly, thanks for your hands in inspiring me to actual build a pedal again. Its been too long

This was so much fun being involved in and its the first pedal I have actually built from scratch in...a week shy of a year! whoa.
Ive modded stuff and rehoused stuff in the meantime but actually making something totally from bits, so thankyou to the DIY community for the inspiration and JHS et al for the impetus.

The vero was my own layout based on the hard work of  Bugg, and some parts inspiration from Bean (cheers guys)
I honestly dont think this is all that rad of a thing, but its a moment in time and cost me about 25 in parts, 17 of which was the fancy Hammond green box.

I hope you enjoy the play on words and honest circuit description as much I as I do.
