Many thanks Rick, the instrument in your photo looks beautiful. I've managed to source a company called wizard pickups here in the UK who make humbuckers for a wider string spacing, could I get the best of both worlds if I follow the advice of the other replies (thanks guys) and add a switch to the circuit to use as singles too? Oh, I have another quick question, if I may.... the cheap instrument that inspired me has classical type tuning pegs so they stick up rather than out like the triangular headstock that you have on your pic. Do you reccomend conventional 3per side, Gibsonish tuning pegs? I would imagine that these would take the pressure of heavy guage strings a little better than classical machine heads..
Yes Rick the cavity is shielded this is a wash burn 6 string Bass. any how I was thinking that I should pull the pots and look for something out of whack because I get this problem when I pick up static electricity and touch any where metal I get a pop through the AMP .also when turned up loud I can hear light signal from 60 hertz as well as cable noise and something else I cant explain but just Noise ..also Rick this is what I heard from an old AMP tech he says use a soldiering Station cause it has a ground If using a cheaper iron you can burn out computer chips in Active Guitars ?I have dealt with this situation in the past where another tech worked on something and no go I had ended up replacing a computer Chip in a Fender J Bass so I am rambling on but there could be something wrong with the Chip ?
