2 Band Tone Control With 2 Humbuckers

2-band-tone-control.jpg

The 2 Band Tone Control wiring scheme with 2 Humbuckers is inspired by G&L Guitars. Features 1 x Volume, 1 x Tone or (treble cut) and 1 x Tone (bass cut). Works great to decrease the bass frequencies in humbuckers to give you more single coil like tones. The Bass cut also has a big effect on overdrive and distortion pedals by making them more focused sounding. The Treble cut works just like a any tone control by cutting treble. Try this wiring scheme before you change your pickups you will be surprised by the cool new tones you can get.

Which Guitar Scale Length Do You Prefer

Which Guitar Scale Length Do You Prefer? Fender 25.5" Gibson 24.75" or PRS 25". I know there's more sacle lengths but these seen to be the most popular. I prefer Fender full scale of 25.5.

Basswood or Poplar

I want to take a stab at building a guitar body. The prices for basswood and polar guitar blanks are cheaper then ash, alder etc. Which wood you choose. Thx.

Guitar Pedal Mounting Options

Using Bike Chain Links/Plates to Mount Guitar Pedals

If your a gigging guitarist you know how important it is to have a sturdy, neatly designed pedal board, with your pedals mounted securely. Nothing worse then having your pedals getting beat up coming off the pedal board, or having the glue from the Velcro all over your board and pedals. Over the years I've used industrial strength Velcro, heavy duty wire ties, threaded L brackets and even corner brackets.
