Wiring 1 volume ,1 tone , 3-way pickup selector
The two pickups with 3-way pickup selector can be set separatly
by its own
and in middle position as neck and one reel bridge pickup.
In the intermediate position of the 3-way switch the humbucker is split, via a capacitor.
This is that a coil can be heard complete, supplied from the second coil what keeps the heights from it in the signal path too.
That way not much output is lost and the sound gets another "twangy" nuance.
Bridge pickup Humbucker more fully crunch sound and pleasantly to heare
Neck pickup P 90 bell like single coil aspect combined with great sustain sound for solo,
both pickups together could be called kind of strat sound
very flexible guitar !
A tidy guitar , pleasantly to hold in hand .
Control elements good to reach and easy handling.
Pickups switching - low friction and easy reachable by hand.
The guitar isn`t neck-heavy and very comfortable and balanced on the belt.
A first-class guitar i will not give out of my hands. Versatile to use and a companion for life .
( Thanks to Duesenberg for the Picture ! )
