"I thought I would let you Ted and Wayfinder know that the guitar is now alive and well. I replaced all of the pot's and wiring with Gibson brand. Of course the Asian pots were smaller and not quite a short shaft and not a long shaft, so I had…"

"Thanks for the advise. This guitar appears to be of Asian decent and not the best POT's and wire were used. It looks like I could have a few cold solder joints to tend with. I figure I will just start from scratch and check my work as I go."

"Hey Brad before buying you might disconnect the pickup and temporarily jumper it to your jack leaving everything else out of the circuit. Work out your pickup wiring and then follow up with your other issues."

"Wayfinder, after checking all wiring (done very poorly) I found that they had used a Seymour Duncan 4 wire pickup and had, per the Seymour Duncan diagrams, reversed the black and green leads on the power pot. I wired and soldered all connections,…"

"Added the new 3 way yesterday and everything is working well. I was limited on where to install it as the guitar had been finished, but it worked out well in the middle, between the volume and tone knobs. The bridge pick-up is still crapping out…"

"Thank you Wayfinder! picture a Les Paul with typical wiring and an Ovation electric/acoustic joined together at the 1/4 inch jack. I kept the 3 tab jack as it is necessary to turn on/off the piezo pre-amp. How would I incorporate a 3-way to separate…"

I recently purchased a kit guitar off Ebay that has a double neck. One is acoustic and the other electric. The person who previously owned the guitar wired the two together at the 1/4 inch jack using a two prong jack and not the three prong for the piezo pick-up. To make a long story short, the piezo didn't work. I replaced the pre amp piezo pick up and wired everything to the new three prong jack, but I can't use the pick-ups separately and if I play awhile on just the bridge humbucker, the…See More
