Hey guys, is there any way i could cause treble loss from all of these wires being in my tele's two control cavities?

I demand to know what all those knobs do and why you need three humbuckers and... and... how much did it cost to do all that?!?!?

It looks like its setup for different volume and tone etc controls on the guitar itself. So you switch between two settings and use two different amps.

Creative idea, I'll give it that!
#15
I'm guessing that the two outputs means that one is MIDI and the other is a standard one... A few blend pot for each pickup, volume for each pickup, tone for each pickup maybe... I'm assuming you're ether a tone seeker or a control freak...

you spelled stereo wrong. and even one output socket can go to a pedal, a mixer, an amp head, or plenty of other things to split the signal into stereo. you probably could've bought another guitar instead of making this ridiculous... dare i say telecaster?!

edit: anyways, the bottom one (which is hard to see) looks like it might be midi. so i take it back.

that is the most hardcore tele i have ever seen, deathmetal with a tele, i want it.
i would find a way to clean it up a bit in there, like wraping the bunches of wires in electril tape, or all the wires to a single pickup in some kind of interference blockig tape.
#19
wow

I thought some of my wiring was complex but that is just... beyond.

I'd never remember what bits did what!

Can't wait to hear what everything's for!
#20
I think it'd be cool to **** around with one of those for a while, see what sounds you can squeeze out of it.

I'm diggin' it, TS, I think it looks cool with all the knobs etc.

Shwiggity.
#21
Wow, cool.
A tele with a rosewood 'board.
... HAH. Bet none of you took any note of THAT :p

It won't be a problem, but it might be worth using higher quality wires or maybe 1000k pots.
#22
(to those guessing what it all does)

k, well without taking another look at the wiring, I'm guessing that theres a volume and tone knob for each of the pickups (did noone else notice the piezo?)

the 2 selector switches, and 2 push/pulls are probably to allow coil splitting options. I would guess one selects between the
piezo/
piezo and one bridge coil/
one coil of bridge/
full bridge humbucker/
other coil of bridge/

then the other something like:

middle (full) humbucker/
middle and one coil of neck/
one coil of neck/
full neck/
other coil of neck/

then one push pull mutes both the bridge and piezos, and the other mutes both the middle and neck buckers


thats my best guess at what it could be, but, of course, I could be miiiiles off.


(and to TS)
it'll probably have a bit of an effect, but (as the post above me says), good wire/ posibly using 1M pots might make up for it..

but regardless, you have a really, really cool tele, Ralph


edit: ****


I didnt even notice the 3-way switch up near the top, or what looks like another piezo at the lower corner of the neck pickup...
then theres what looks like a momentary switch

so to add to what I'm guessing it does, the 3-way could select between either piezo, and momentary switch is a killswitch.

just guessing still, though

^ good eyes, boss!

I'd think the same thing, but I've not got half a clue about half of this stuff.

that's like, a quarter of a clue, at best. Not impressive.

awesome, youve beat matt bellamy on most knobs fitted to a telecaster type guitar

(maybe)

maybe im off, but the first thing i noticed was not the piezo on the bridge but what looks like a piezo on the corner of the neck pickup, anyone else think so?
so I'm thinking this:
Magnetic pickups:
5-way switch
master volume
master tone
blend pot for bridge hb
coil splitter

Piezos:
3-way switch to choose betweeb bridge/neck piezos
volume
tone
mystery pot
mystery push/pull

killswitch

and past that i'm stuck, because if you look closely, there aren't actually two outputs, the strat style output is upside down (check the lack of a rout for it in the first pic he posted) and has a switch for something instead of a jack, so that gives us mono output, but leaves three switches and two more pots (one of them a push/pull) that need explanation, in addition to how wrong I am about most of this...

That's pretty cool, fairly neat, all things considering.

I definitely beats out mine for knobs.


I like my complex setups as simple as possible, though, if that makes sense.


And in all honesty, you're not adding that much capacitance with those wires to make a difference. Nowhere near, in fact.

Quote by pielover375
What does the switch turn on and off?


Well, it's a triple pole double throw switch that mutes the guitar and changes the functions of some of the switches. the red button is a reverse- killswitch. it lets the muted signal through when you press it.
