  2. Because Photobucket has chosen to in effect "take down" everyone's photos (unless you pay them), we have extended post edit time in the Luthier's Corner to UNLIMITED.  If you used photobucket and happen to still have your images of builds, you can go back and fix as many of your posts as far back as you wish.

    Note that TalkBass will host unlimited attachments for you, all the time, for free ;)  Just hit that "Upload a File" button.  You are also free to use our Media Gallery if you want a place to create albums, organize photos, etc :)

    I've been asked to rewire my friend's brand new ES-335 with coil tapping, and I know exactly how to do it, only I don't know how to get inside the guitar. There's no back control plate, so how do I get inside to rewire?

    Do I just unscrew the pots, pull all the wires out through the F-hole and do it from there? Get everything back in with wierd tools to line things up right?
     
  3. Yep, that's the way... :spit:

    Jaco could do it with his 9" fingers!

    You might want to do a search over on the MIMF in the archives about this subject. The builders over there have come up with many interesting solutions to this prob.

    Sweet, ES-335 here I come.

    Just let me ask, do you think it makes more sense to have seperate switches for splitting each humbucker or the same switch? My friend is thinking about dropping a 500T in the bridge and leaving the '57 Classic in the neck...
