2 pickups 2 vol pots #2

This is my 2nd try at using 2 pick ups and 2 vol pots. This time I used a mini humbucker(10k) at the neck with a 500k pot and a single coil(9k) at the bridge with a 250k pot…See More

soundboard wood

Posted on April 29, 2016 at 4:50pm 4 Comments

3 way switch ?

The neck and bridge position sound like I expected, the neck is subdued and the bridge is harsh. My question is about the middle position. Both pickups are active but the neck pickup is dominate and the ohms drop to 3.05. I was expecting more of a equal blend. Any ideas? At the top of this page is a…
