Swamp Lion Circuit- 3 P90s!

Hello everybody!Thought I'd drop these nuggets for anyone looking to wire (3) P90s into their guitars.First, the middle pickup must be reverse-wound, meaning you would wind the pickup clockwise.  The neck and bridge pickup are winded in counterclockwise.Polarities of the magnets for the neck and bridge can either be North or south, but they must be the same polarity identical to each other.  The middle pickup will be the opposite polarity from the neck and bridge.So your pickup orientation  can…See More

"I don't discriminate the Fender type headstock, it's just I'm still a budding builder and haven't wrapped my head around the geometries yet.  I will soon enough try it. I do like to build from 24 inch to 24.5 inch scales,…"

"I never done a Leo Fender type headstock, mostly Gibson angled headstock. For me, it does matter.  A good angled headstock can give good string tension and adds more precision to the action of the strings.   For instance, when using…"

What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
I love guitars of all kinds. Its the sound and tone of them that attracts me. The thing I love more about CBGs, is the nature of building something out of nothing. Taking average, everyday material and creating an instrument that will fly you to the moon and forget about the world. I don't know if the word exists to describe the world of ingenuity CBGs are, but its dank, dirty, garage, gully and best of all, funky.
