    A day to feel blessed and no-load tone pot?

    Thanks for that stevo. Regards the no-load, I guess one never knows when a brighter sound will be needed, but it would put another arrow in the quiver should I feel the need. As I've already ordered the Mojotron, gonna have to suck it and see...

    A day to feel blessed and no-load tone pot?

    Thanks loudnlousy and stevo for your replies, brighter with more bite is not normally my thing, greater width of tone and clarity is my thing, but as you say stevo, there is no harm done in putting one in, especially as I'm playing around with the pickups. I'll try my best and explain what I...

    A day to feel blessed and no-load tone pot?

    From what I understand, that is correct. Listening to A/B comparisons on Youtube, there seems to be a very slightly fuller tone to a no-load tone pot, but there is also a very slight increase in volume, so it could be my brain thinking loudest is best? I also believe some Gretsch guitars have...

    A day to feel blessed and no-load tone pot?

    As a newbie, I owned up today on the newbie part of this forum to ordering some Mojo Pickups 'Mojotron' pups, Filter'tron clones, because I wasn't too enamoured with the Broadtron pups in my new 5220 for the first few days. Well, that was until I discovered the NFB circuit on my modded Princeton...

I need to own up to something regards the 5220, I nearly sent it back! Some of you may have spotted my post about the bridge pickup sounding out...

    Phasey sounding bridge pickup

    UPDATE My mind is messing with me, today I can't hear it sounding out of phase!?! I know the strings on it are lighter than I usually use and on the bridge pickup it's surprisingly got more top end than my Tele (I'm thinking because of the new and lighter strings?). Too be honest, I'm...

    Phasey sounding bridge pickup

    Yes, it sounds out of phase. Sorry to be a dimwit, but what am I looking for regards the wiring, that its soldered differently to the pots compared to the neck pickup? Found this on the Seymour Ducan site:- How can you make a humbucker out of phase with itself? This can be done by...

    Hey all

    Hey all Finally joined the forum I've been reading for a couple of years (I have to admit because I have a problem, so please forgive my impertinence). I've had a G6120 Nashville for about 18 months (wanted one for years), which I love more and more, and a new G5220 Electromatic Jet arrived...

    Phasey sounding bridge pickup

    Hi all A spanky new Firestick Red G5220 Jet arrived today, very nice, although the pickups looked poorly setup and I was rather underwhelmed by the sound. Checked out setup specs online and adjusted the pickups to spec. The neck pickup now sounds as I expected it to, but the bridge pickup, on...
