  • Master Volume, Master Tone.




    From Website: Note that it might be preferable to break the connection to ground on the two non-master volume pots in the diagram above. If left connected, you may get a muddy sound as the non-master pot and the master pot will combine resistance. Removing the grounds from the non-master vol controls will ensure no tone loss but will also mean that you can't turn either pickup all the way off when in the middle position. Of course, there're the other two positions for that.

  • Brilliant that last one John. You should add Lancia to the list there, we recently found a completely useless one in the Fulvia that started under the dash (just hanging) went down the length of the body on the floor, went through a hole near the boot and was then just hanging loose on the underside of the body somewhere!

    Here's the 4-way Tele switching I have in my Tele:

  • Stratocaster wiring, with trebble bleed, star grounding and bridge PU to tone pot. 

    While the Trebble bleed and tone pot wiring are to taste - I strongly recommend the Star grounding.  Its made my strat almost hum free, in a small room with a PC and two monitors, an amp and flourescent lights !!.  The round bit the ground wires are attached to is a solder tag mounted between the scrath plate and the PU selector using the selector screw.

    (incidentally I changed the Tome Cap to a 0,22 PIO and its done wonders :) ):

  • I left all the pot casings unconnected.  you dont need to earth the pot casings, if fact doing so adds to hum - you dont want them in the earth circuit.

  • I'm attempting to follow this diagram during an overhaul of my Yamaha bass.
    I'm back - am I the same person or just a clone of myself?
