The magnetic picks tend to be broken into two categories: The single coil pickup, and the double coil or humbucking pickup. Magnetic pickups gain their magnetic fields most commonly from two styles of magnets. There are pickups that will have a magnet that is a rod that will be attached to the base of the pickup, while other pickups achieve magnetism from pole pieces. Pole pieces are magnetic cylinders that come out of the pick and in some pickups adjustments can be made to strengthen the sound of the string.
Guitar Wiring Explored – Switches Part 2. In this article we look at a new kind of toggle switch – the "onoffon" switch. Having understood that, we look at how we can use this switch to split a humbucker to either coil, or use it as a regular humbucker, all on the same switch.
There is so much more to be developed in the near future with the improvements in computer technology and miniaturization. Whole racks of effects can now be had in a box the size of a cigarette packet. This is certainly a boon for the musician in terms of both price and the effort necessary to move the equipment. I foresee a day when an entire guitarist rig, with the exception of the instrument itself will be contained within the body of the guitar itself. And while that may not be a comfort to the guitarist who finds himself at home amongst his racks of effects processors, time waits for no man, and he will eventually find himself at a crossroads in musical instrument development, much as those men did back in 1930's and 40's when the acoustic guitar was forced to make way for the first electric guitars.
Here's how you can get this effect: Set the neck pickup volume knob all the way down to zero. Set the bridge pickup volume knob all the way to maximum. Keep all tone controls on maximum. Then you do the following: Set your pickup selector switch to Treble (the bridge position). Play a note or a chord and let it ring out. While it's ringing out, flick the pickup selector switch back and forth between Rhythm and Treble. You will hear the sound cut in and out crisply. This is because when you switch to the Rhythm pickup, there is "no sound there" because its volume knob is all the way down to zero. When you switch the pickup switch back to Treble, the sound instantly goes back to full volume.
