  1. Guitar buzzes when plugged in with any pickup selected. Buzz is still present when touching the strings, but disappears when touching the metal cover of the jack plugged into the guitar. Guitar otherwise works correctly. Likely Cause: Ground wire to the bridge is not making proper contact at the bridge or at the grounding point inside guitar. The wire has either become disconnected at one end, is not making proper contact at the bridge due to insulating paint preventing conductivity, or is missing altogether. Solution: The easiest method to check for a break
  2. Hi! I designed and built the carbon-fiber-bamboo guitar. Currently, I use DiMarzio Injector pickups. On my next iteration of the prototype, I would like to experiment on hexaphonic pickups for hex processing. The Cycfi Six Pack Project is an ongoing Open Source Hardware project for the development of an active hexaphonic pickup system designed for hex processing. The pickup has six low impedance coils. The hex pickup is active with six differential low-noise, low-power pre-amplifiers —one for each coil. It has the same footprint as the ubiquitous Strat single coil, with a very low profil
  3. Just got a new gigging acoustic (cole clarke angel), but immediateley noticed what I'm missing from my old gig axe, a crafter SA (similar to the more popular taylor T5), in that it has tge ability to switch and blend peizo and electromagnetic pickups which was great for looping. so, I have orded a soundhole humbucker to put in it, an "a little thunder" which has a 6 string output. and an octaver bass only output. rather than start hacking into my new guitar, I'm opting for external mixing/eq, BUT, I use wireless most of the time, so I need a passive bodypack mixer before my wireless.
  4. Trying to keep cost down in building I'm always looking for alternative suppliers for everything. One thing that always amazes me are the prices for guitar-related electronics. Caps at $10, pots at $12 etc., whereas if you source capacitors for other electronics they cost around $0.05 anybody here ever found an electronics supplier to get stuff at 'normal' prices?
  5. Hi everyone, I have some question regarding basses in general and I was wondering if some of you could help me out. For starters, I'm not a bass player and so far I've only "played" about 15 minutes top with a bass I borrowed from a friend. A funny anecdote is that I was going to purchase an Ibanez (GIO) 5-strings bass just before I took my decision to start building instruments, so my budget went in tooling and material instead. And I told myself that I'd make one myself at some point. Fast-forward a year later, and I still don't have a bass and my desire to learn to play bass
  6. Hi, first time poster! I have googled around and searched the forum to see if I could find some answers to this question but I've not been able to locate any. Help very much appreciated! I've just finished building my first guitar (Tele copy from premade neck and premade unfinished body) and it looks great and plays lovely! However, I can't get any signal from the bridge pick up. I've looked at several possible issued/solutions but can't figure it out. I'd be very grateful for any advice, as I've not been able to identify any solutions anywhere online and I'm a bit stumped at this po
  7. Hello Everyone, If you've been following the in this forum, it's very much alive and kicking. I avoided posting marketing related ads as proper etiquette dictates so recent activities may seem sparse in that thread. On the contrary, the project has matured and we've begun limited production last April. Anyway, as mentioned in the hex-thread, "the goal is to have hexaphonic sustain drivers as well. That, and with extensive processing for each string, will give us musicians full control over the dynamics of the guitar. I know hexaphonic sustain has been done in the past with the Moog gu

  10. Greetings again! It's time to start again my annual guitar project with a new build thread. Firstly forgive my little rusty English, haven't been posting nothing since last autumn. Some of you may still remember my previous topic (EXP2012 :http://projectguitar.ibforums.com/topic/46432-explorer-2012/ ). The project is sill unfinished and has a big goal to be sprayed during the next summer. I actually had a spray gun in my hand already, when my boss called and canceled my vacation. Needless to say, a man who comes between the builder and his guitar is no more my boss. But without further b
  11. I'm trying to figure out if these things are worth building, Occasionally you see prototyping pedals where all the dials and switches are built into a pedal, and you get to arrange all the electronic guts (ICs, resistors, caps etc.) to make any pedal you want, and fully customizable. So basically it's a shell of a pedal, where without soldering you get to make/modify any pedal you want, and you can even build/tweak exact replicas of almost any pedal. If it was easy and cheap enough to do: Would you ever use one to sculpt your unique tone? To learn electronics for fun? Or if you're elect
  12. so i post this in electronics because i am working on my sustainer and it is going in the fretless guitar here which was a laughable first act guitar that suprisingly enough was actualy quite resonant. so i changed the scale length and made it fretless and started on the electroncis. i am actually working on the sustainer right now thought i would take a break and post this. a couple of pics for ya i know its a silly thing but i love the shape of this guitar and i am doing a gig soon where i run parallel delays into a master delay. the parallel delays are set for a ring mod fr
