So I am wiring up a vintage Strat pickguard using a wiring harness that came with a body I bought years ago. Its quality pots and work, has a treble bleed installed between the left & center lugs of volume pot., but also has something curious I havent seen. It has what looks to be a 2nd treble bleed (cap/resistor combo) added between the volume pot's body (ground) and the ground return from the output jack. So instead of the output jack sleeve going directly to the pots back/ground, it runs thru a cap/resistor in parallel and then to the body. Anyone know what the purpose of this would be?
I dont have Waldo's (no, not Walter Lure; the electronics hero) Jerry Garcia wiring diagram to check right now, but I sem to recall he had "extra" resistors in between ground connections "pull down" resistors. Thats may be a different use altogether but its the closest thing I recall seing to the above design. Hopefully you guys can visualize the wiring from above text as camera not handy bc just moved; but Ill try and load a photo top clarify.
Here are some pics; it is the cap/res combo on the right of the photo, the top pot (volume). Its wired between the output jack sleeve and the ground (pot back).http://s1358.photobucket.com/user/Tittl ... r%20wiring
Just waiting for some shrink wrap to shield the TPC-1 before I install it in my Garcia build (another guitar entirely). Wondering how much that will change the response of the 25k volume pot I installed in it (without any onboard buffer/preamp to drive). I also ordered a regular spaced Super 2 since the F spaced ones I have are not a great fit. I have a Super Distortion Id like to use instad of Super 2 for 1 of positions...probably bridge would be best i guess. When freedom is outlawed only outlaws aere free...
