Hey all. a few quick questions regarding rewiring my guitar from 3 single coils to Humbucker in the bridge.

Q1 - from all the wiring diagrams I've seen, the .022 capacitor is soldered to the neck pickup tone pot (8th lug connection) but on my guitar the capacitor is on the middle pickup tone pot (7th lug connection).

Does this make any noticeable difference?


thanks for the tip, but that forum page has wiring for all guitars, types, and configurations and its 236 pages long.......

.....anyone else who could tell me here in a few sentences I'd be grateful
Yes but you don't have to read all of it. Just click "last page", Post your question, and Jim, James, Cedric, SYK, Monkeylink, bland, bobby and others will help you. That's what it's there for.

no, it's just easier for people to answer them there, and there's no need to look through all the pages, just ask a question in the last page, and someone's sure to help you.

so posting topics about gear building isn't allowed in the gear building forum? take a chill pill guys.

of course not. we try to keep all the topics about gear building in recording forum

we have a set of only threads for things that are simpler questions and get asked a lot. wiring is one of those things. please use that thread.
