"It was a real learning experience for me . It was the first full scale that I had built. I ended up having to seal the box because the top was warped."

I was a sheetmetal/steel fabricator for most of my life and here about 4 years ago I started loosing mobility on my right side and was diagnosed with Parkinson's. My fiance' is an accomplished musician and my muse . The first ever instrument that was built by my was a tennis racket banjo. And then a friend brought a pour ukulele that had been sat on , with a tear in his eye ask if I could bring it back and so I did as my first cigar box instrument .

Wiring diagram for 2 humbuckers and 1 piezo through a 5 way switch

Posted on March 9, 2017 at 3:24pm 2 Comments

I am looking to wire 2 double humbuckers with a pre-amped piezo through a 5way switch . Am I going to have to use a super switch to combat bucking ? I am not all that experienced with 5way switches so any help would be appreciated.
