read the OP. you dont have to quote as long as its understood what youre answering.

im afraid i cant answer youre question, but ill guess.

you probably can, but you do have a risk of ruining the tone?

Stereo


Mono


Just either ignore the sleeve connection, or wire it up with the ring. Either would work.

Great thread here.

Question: Will a Squier '51 pickguard fit in a squier starcaster? (not a fender starcaster, a SQUIER starcaster)

anyone here know how to ground to the pot when you're using a concentric for 2 volumes? do you just ground 3rd lug to the side on the top pot and to the back on the bottom pot?

Depending on how bad it is, sometimes crpe paper (tissue paper) can be used to repair it. You will need to glue on 5-8 layers. Glue-layer-glue-layer etc. Some people use Elmer's School glue, I use clear nail polish.

i have a few more questions.

would it be practical to build a guitar entirely out of plexiglass? (every wood part made out of plexiglass: fretboard, neck, body)

what would really high value caps do to guitar tone? (ie: 2200uF)

how do you put a battery saving on/off switch onto a pedal. (i tried just cutting the power from one by putting the positive & negative wires together via a DPDT switch but it still died, would a simple on/off toggle work?)

how do you add a "cascade" switch to a pedal like the Jacques Overtube TS-808 clone

and, lastly,

where do babies come from?



also, thank you cedric, i'll try that with the tissue paper. it's only a small hole, about 1/8" in diameter. still sounds somewhat okay.

Unless you're running a TRS cable from your guitar, both the ring and sleeve will make contact with the sleeve of the guitar cable. You could use the ring as ground or the sleeve. It doesn't matter.

Alright, so I have to cut the taper of the neck and fretboard. I know that, to do this, you have to play connect the dots with the nut and bridge.
To actually be able to do that, I'll need to have the neck in it's pocket right? So I'll have to do at least a rough cut of the neck first, right?

Are you making your own scale length etc?

If yes, than I have no idea how to do it.

If you're using a pre-existing scale, I would measure the width at a nut of that particular scale, and then the width of the xth fret, where x is the final fret of the board. Even better would be to measure the width at the very end of the board. I would also get the width at the 12th fret or something, just to give you a 3rd point for more accuracy.

Then you can mark out half that distance on each side of the centerline of your neck for each point, and then connect the dots and cut.


Alternatively, figure out the angle between the bottom of the fretboard and the nut and then build a fence?

==

I haven't done a taper yet so take my advice with a grain of salt, but it seems ok to me.
