GregP Posted January 9, 2007 Report Share Posted January 9, 2007 #1 line of questioning: So I got this really cool guitar for Christmas + Birthday, the Cort Pagelli. It is wired up 1 vol, 1 tone, 3-way LP-style toggle, + push/pull coil split. The literature says that when the coils are tapped, it is the "outside" coils that are tapped... which I always assumed that used in combination would buck at least SOME of the hum. But in "coil split" mode, all 3 positions of my switch produce identical levels of hum. By looking at the electronics cavities, I can't tell what's going on. But any insight would be helpful. ---- #2 set of questions: I'm going to drop in a JB/Jazz combo. I like the guitar itself well enough to do that upgrade, and I already have the pickups lying around which I was going to use for an actual build. But since the build is far from complete, I might as well make use of the pickups: - with regards to the coil-split mode, am I correct in assuming that the outside coils should partially cancel hum if used together? - Is anybody aware of a diagram online for when I rewire? Saves me having to keep meticulous track of each wire as I go. - my pickups don't have covers, but I want chrome covers. Are most chrome covers from online sources "conductive" so that they will offer some shielding once I properly ground them? Or are they non-conductive? (ie. painted plastic) - I COULD theoretically use the existing covers, but that might require too much work if they've been potted. Do Mighty Mite covered pickups come fully potted? ---- Sorry for all the stupid questions. As I type them, I know that some of this I could find out myself with some legwork-- but if anybody has insight for any of these questions without spending too much of their OWN time covering for my lazy butt, I'd appreciate it.
