I'm about to start my 2nd build -- a Jazzmaster with a S-S-H pup configuration. Looking to have a very versatile guitar for rawk/alt country. Something that can twang and quack, but also handles overdrive well. Any recommendations as far as brands or specs?

Bill Lawrence - L-610L for the bridge, 4.8 Henries - think noiseless P-90 in a humbucker housing.

L-200s for the next two positions - noiseless strat sound out of the box.

I'm a big fan of Novak pickups. Contact Curtis and let him know what you are looking for and he will make them.

Duncan L'l 59 bridge; Duncan JB Jr. center; Gibson Dirty Fingers neck 5 way switch; no-load tone; blender; 250 pots (NOT 500's)
Requires: Shielded pickguard and cavities, wiring grounded bridge. result will be:

With blender ON:


With blender OFF:


Get wiring diagram from Duncan, I can't find it in their files w/ a blender...call them, they have it...you'll have to trade out .022 cap/.047 to see which one you like...I used a .047 and a volume bleed....also a quality foil in oil cap no orange drop!.
It will give you pretty much any sound you want using the no-load tone position and pedals of your choice the possibilities are not limitless, but are sure amazing...it will give you what you want for sure, it's what I built for my Son for his Road Tele.
It WILL be noiseless if you shield it correctly. Wink
