    New Fretless Four String Guitar ... well not new, and not a guitar but hey! This belonged to my wife's grandmother as a child so it dates back to 1910's It would have been a very basic instrument though it is full size. No cracks so I'll be cleaning it up and re-stringing it and it will...

    So in preparation for building a new wiring harness for my Ibanez Artcore hollow body I decided to check the circuit I would use before starting the soldering.

    SSS Wiring experiment

To start with it had its original wiring of 5-way switch with T1 for Neck, T2 for Middle and none for bridge. Both Tone controls active in pos 4 (neck and middle). What I wanted...

    ... I bought my first strat: It's a 1989 Japanese Standard Strat serial number I000067 Candy Apple Red and the controls/covers are naturally aged from the original bright white. £239 in the UK. I went in to buy a US model and came out with this as it felt and sounded so much nicer and I...
