Um, How Are You Gonna Make This All Work? Once I got the pickups picked out, I went to work on the wiring. This is based on the fact that I don’t want any switch positions that I won’t use, and only ones I do. I don’t like having tons of options either, as it makes it harder to get to the sound I want.
12AX7 Tubes. There are five (5) types of 12ax7 tubes being made today, and the same tube is often sold under multiple different labels. If you want to know what you are buying, the best thing you can do is become familiar with the construction of the different types, so you can tell which is which regardless of the label each is being sold under.
If you want that same switching speed he is getting, you can still pull this off with your three-way pickup switch. Rather than set it at Treble, set it in the middle position (which is supposed to give you a blend of half Neck pickup, half Bridge pickup). Then switch quickly between the Rhythm position ("all the way up") and the middle position. That way you are not having to "jump over" the middle position in the switch to get the sound to cut in and out quickly. Jimi Hendrix and Van Halen are two of the best guitarists in rock history. What they have in common is this: the pursuit of new and unique sounds by trying all sorts of crazy stuff that other people simply wouldn't think to do. Hopefully this pickup selector switch trick I just showed you can spark some ideas for your creativity. Have fun!
The classic form of Fender Telecaster was a very simple framework, which had a neck and fingerboard including a single piece of maple, which was bolted to an ash or alder body with both sides flat, the front and back. The hardware included the two single coil pickups, which were controlled by a three-way selector switch with volume and tone controls. Earlier, the pickguard was made of bakelite, which was later made with plastic and was fixed on the body with five screws at first but later on with eight screws. The bridge had three saddles, which were adjustable with the strings doubled up on each. This became a thrilling addition in the world if guitars and soon different companies followed its lead.
