Hey guys,
I am currently building a very unique guitar. So far I've made all the parts myself: bridge, tailpiece, pickups, pickup covers, and electronic mounting plates. I have 3 potentiometers in it. One is mounted sideways and has a disk the sticks up through the body and 2 slide pots. My question how should I wire this, should I have a master volume and a tone for each pickup, or a master tone and a separate volume for each humbucker? I am leaning towards the master tone and separate volumes but I'd like other opinions.


I will post pics when I get a chance.

Depends, it's really a case of killswitch against serperate tone pots. Do you ever roll your tone down? if not, go for the master tone and separate volume

Here is a few pics. I still need to do te neck and make the bridge pickup. In the pic only the pickup cover for the neck pickup is shown. The slide pots are along side the pickups. the other holes on the larger plate are for the output jack and a killswitch for each pickup.

What is it made of, wood wise? It looks very... thin!

I don't know what kinda wood it is. It is about 1.75" thick. There is a veneer on the top and bottom. As far as the shape goes, it is supposed to be very unique
