    P90 parallel/ series and in/ out of phase switches

    Hi, I am trying to wire these p90s similar to the telecaster diagram with two dpdt switches for series/ parallel and in/out of phase but I don’t know where the third wire on the neck pickup comes from. Can I just add one?

    CV Jaguar tone knob adds treble, then nothing, then bass+volume as you turn up?!

    Hi, I'm new to the forum! I recently bought a CV Jaguar new. When increasing the tone knob on the main circuit, 0-3 it adds treble, 3-7 it does literally nothing, 7-10 it adds bass and/or volume, certainly a lot more than treble! Everything else, strangle switch, selectors, rhythm circuit works...

    Neck + tapped bridge on HSS Performer?

    I’ve got a loaded fender performer HSS pickguard from stratosphere on the way to use in an SE. I’m really digging the tones I’ve heard in demos for the double tap humbucker and I previously had a Yosemite SSS set so I’m familiar with the neck and middle pups. I’m hoping this HSS set is versatile...

    My Squier Deluxe Stratocaster is really coming together now. The stock wiring was a little cactus when I got the guitar, thanks to whatever water damage the seller hid during the sale. I'd replaced a couple parts with whatever I had on hand, but really wanted to upgrade the whole kit and...
