Well, I know how to solder a cable, but don't really know how to change a pot. I'll consider about doing this kind of lesson. It will be interesting.

well, I know to solder a cable and I did it, but I know how to change a pot but I never did it !! hehe, but no problem cos next month I will change my old guitar's one so I could do this review XD

Well, in fact my project is more ambicious, hehehe, I'm gonna change pickups and volume pot and I will add 2 next pots for extra pickups combination, and add another as a killswitch biggrin.gif And I'm gonna scalloped it and install a "tremol-YES" an invention from a Spanish luthier (similar to the tremol-NO but without blocking the bridge tongue.gif)

hehe, well, you must wait till next month 'cos now I found another house in Girona (where I'm living with my girlfriend), and this 25th February I sign the renting contract (and I must pay 3000 € !!! OMG, I don't know if I will have money to pass this month !!! XD) so when I be in my new home I will start this project.

Well, this is the basic diagram (by Demolition Tatto, www.guitarraprofesional.com) ... well, I want to add the killswitch, but that's not the most difficult tongue.gif

I surly won't!! Didn't I tell you I actually got my computer on fire once ? Yeah , I bought a new video card and company didn't have it available that particular day so they gave me a temporary one to install smile.gif I always install components by myself in my computer..So ok , I took the card ..plugged it in the AGP slot (agp card there) and screwed everything in place..Leaved the side of my tower open as I always do..Put it on desk, connect all cables..I press the big power button and viola!! My motherboard is on fire and smell is everywhere!!!!! smile.gif There where actual flames in there ...I quickly pulled out the power cable from behind the tower and flames extinguished... smile.gif Its was quite an interesting experience..Company repaired my motherboard (I don't know how , its still in my computer now) and gave me new video card (that one was fried) because I was under warranty (they didn't like that) and we politely discontinued our deal smile.gif

Hey Juan, do you like capacitors on volume pot? I've just installed one on my custom 7 string guitar, I've completely re-made the electronics with copper tape, van de hul silver cables cts pot and bla bla bla : 3 way tele switch, 2 humbackers, 1 volume and a kill switch. The volume pot now works as an high pass filter duo to the capacitor, and when I lower the volume, my pick-up will sound like single coils, I'm planning to remove it
