Ever wonder what out-of-phase means? Series?
Parallel? Or, maybe, how can I get more tones out of
my axe?

scarf!

telecaster neck pup

Hi Eddie, I have a 90's telecaster built in Japan and the only way to access the neck pup for adjustment is by removing the scratch plate, however, I was thinking,would it be o. k to drill a small hole (1/8") ? either side of the pup in the scratch plate to access the adjustment screws. I would appreciate any advise you may have. Regards Phil Cose

Deaf-Eddie wiring tricks

I've tried about half a dozen of Deaf-Eddie's wiring mods so far, and would have to recommend them to anyone wanting to make a Strat really versatile & exciting. I've also done a Deaf-Eddie Les Paul with 3 extra tones, and am working on a Strat/Les Paul "Stinger" - kind of the best of both worlds. Thanks guitarsite & Deaf Eddie "Emmett Brown".

stratocasters

I was wondering if possibly you could help me in locating a standard wiring diagram for a fender strat.as I have purcashed a seymour duncan hot rail I would like to install and want to make sure every thing else is in order as I have experianced some difficulty with this instrument as of late and have had no such luck from the fender website Thanks Dave

Re: stratocasters

To Dave (and others): hope you got your Hot Rails installed okay and everything is allright. I rebuilt my own Stratocaster tm. with active pickups, pre-amp & 9 volt battery over a year ago. There wasn't really any diagram for that one. Anyhow, both EMG and Seymour Duncan have forums where we can all ask questions and get some pretty good answers. DiMarzio and Deaf-Eddie have also assisted by sending diagrams to my email. That's excellent, cuz my dad Dwight has been waiting to hear from Fender tm. since 1972. You can also get diagrams online at the guitarelectronics website. My rockitsciencelabs site is still under construction but I sketch out diagrams for people who need them. Sorry the guitar manufacturer in this case does not help.

Re: stratocasters

I'm a little new at these forums, so there's been a mistake. I clicked enter after my name, and the words of the previous followup by Andrew Listmayer were sent.

Sorry. Strat again, I mean start again: Hi Deaf-Eddie, Dave 'Hot Rails' & others. I jammed last night with my Fat Strat that has 11 sounds made possible by a Fat-O-Caster X2 switch, from Deaf-Eddie himself. It's already been reviewed as "fantastic" under Deaf-Eddie pickups on Harmony Central.

I played the Fat Strat with its extra series-power, while my best buddy played his Les Paul/Marshall and all that. He might of looked a little better with his quilted flametop but I think we sounded pretty equal? together, if not about the same, most of the time. The rest of the time, I still had all the stock tones from my hot single coils as well as the original humbucker at the bridge.

Thanks Deaf-Eddie for inventing a $30 switch that installs in an hour, that makes my Strat sound like $5,000 or more!

My buddy wants to get a Fat Strat or possibly a Telecaster now with these wiring tricks that sound so cool.

Hey, tell your buddy there's a great diagram, and it's free at www.deaf-eddie.net that shows how to get 5 different sounds from a Telecaster, without changing pickups. I think I'll try it.

Also, there's a switch called the Chromacaster that enables a SINGLE COIL Stratocaster to make 16 SOUNDS! Man I love it, it's also fantastic! I've given my opinion of it at www.harmonycentral.com under guitar pickups too. Rock on!
