I'd be especially interested in seeing the parallel/series wiring in that thing. And Orange Drops caps make for great pics just all by themselves!
C'mon dood ... GUTS GUTS GUTS GUTS!!!
Your girl is a cutey ... "Eline"? Chicks with basses ... nothing like it!
Eline is a hotty yes...
i gave her a Sax last year. that looks hot aswell :P
I am gonna gut my bass this afternoon.
I have to rewire a couple of things because i wasn't happy with some of the wire. i didn't have an extra white one so i used a yellow one :P.
Im a bit anal about that kinda stuff.
do a coppertape job in the bridge PU cavity.
i was short on time the last time.
i had to use an alpha push pull volume pot for the parallel/series switch.
Not happy with that. so i am probably gonna go for the regular CTS pot and a seperate toggle switch.
advantage is that i can not switch it off by accident when slapping the high strings.
I used star grounding like they guy form www.guitarnuts.com
Its far better then grounding your pots together because of ground loops. check it out.
you can even add an extra capacitor as an electrical shock security in case of a broken tube amp.
you can find it all at that site.
i am gonna take a lot of high-res photo's for you guys and try to explain a couple of things regarding the grounding and such.
i even have an idea to put an extra switch with 2 orange drops of different value instead of the 1. so i can switch them. but that is just an idea.
the difference in sound would be small. maybe too small.
what's your guys take on that?
