I picked up another Strat at the pawnshop for 79 bucks. Squier Bullet Strat by Fender. At that price, I couldn't resist. Problem is they had 2 other nice guitars that were beckoning to me and marked…Continue

Paul Craig replied to Jon's discussion Where to solder
"The pickup signal wire goes to the middle lug of the volume pot. The wire that's disconnected is to the tone pot and you want to solder it to the same middle lug that the pickup is soldered to. This is known as a 50's wiring scheme."

Paul Craig replied to Jim Codog's discussion Strings breaking --- What good is a 3 string guitar if it only has 2 strings?
"Make sure your not over tuning the strings and check all places the string come into contact with(tuner holes, nut, retainers, bridge, stop tail/tremolo/ferrules) for any sharp edges or burrs. Where are the strings breaking in relation to the…"

Paul Craig replied to Paul Craig's discussion Guitar kits
"Our CBG's can be modified to accent 3 or 4 groups of 2 strings. My first attempt at making a Dulcitar had 3 groups of 2 strings and most Mandolins/Bouzouki's have 4 groups of 2 strings on fingerboards of the same width as our CBG…"

Now they have 16.3" scale little guitar kits in Strat and Tele style for right at $140 USD.The little kits are great for kids, but they are also fun for adults too. There's a "Little Guitar" craze going on right now among adults. They like to get the little 6 string Squier brand guitars and convert the nut and bridge for 3 groups of 2 strings(half of…See More

Paul Craig replied to Adam Jellison's discussion Wickedbucker + Piezo +Volume Jack in the group CBG wiring & electronics.
"That's right. Just turn up the one you want and turn down the one you don't want. Blend in both if you want. I'd use 500k pots and try a .047 cap since you'll be using a HB and piezo. You can change caps to get better tone -…"

Paul Craig replied to Adam Jellison's discussion Wickedbucker + Piezo +Volume Jack in the group CBG wiring & electronics.
