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.

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

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