    Some guitars are too funny not to post

    (...) I was betting on a chewing dog... probably not liking the payer's/owner's guitar skills... this would be a better story...

    Big Blocks for Ibanez trems / FU-Tone Block benefits?

    If those wood blocks blocking the trem are already transferring the strings' vibration to the guitar's body, why would you need a FuTone big block? In my opinion it would be a waste of money on a mod hardly noticeable, if at all. I'd faster experiment on pots than on those.

    Put on other movies, like "The Toy Story", "A Bug's Life", "Ant Z", "Cars", "Kung Fu Panda", "Wall-E" (this one is grand and has super nice music), "Ratatui", "How to train your dragon"... just to name a few. 😁

    Pickup not showing DC resistance but still works?

    ... good luck then, may you recover your money back and invest it into another functional pickup.

    Big Blocks for Ibanez trems / FU-Tone Block benefits?

    If the trems were floating, maybe the different mass those add would do significant changes in the overall tone, but since they're blocked, I wouldn't even bother with that. I think a volume (and tone?) pot change can do MUCH more for a guitar's tone, specially on passive pickups/circuits. The...

    Pickup not showing DC resistance but still works?

    The theory on humbuckers is that one needs reverse wound and reverse polarity coils to have a hum canceling sound. Since all coils are coiled in the same direction, what one does is to reverse it's wiring. The START and END on each coil mean the point in the wound wire where the winding STARTs...

    What do you play besides Guitar and Bass?

    I used to play "door bells" when a kid, I had a song with the buddies like this (I think you can guess the melody, it's cheerful an proper to an end of the year celebration): Ring the bell, ring the bell, ring and run away! Oh what fun it is to run,, ringing all the day!... (repeat) ... And if...

    Pickup not showing DC resistance but still works?

    ... and it just occurred me, could the coils be wired in parallel? It's a birighter sound than a series humbucker, kind of single coil-ish, but not quite and still feels somehow compressed like the series wiring...

    These are just laid over the car's hood, probably just for the fun / sillyness of the picture (like that overseen pic of mic'ing a head instead of a cab). Maybe the one in the middle is installed, but the others are not.

    Pickup not showing DC resistance but still works?

    I'd go with start from scratch and transform this pickup in a 4 wire one. You'll free the bobbins' START and END leads and that's where you should measure the coils' continuity. Oh, can you record some clean, and crunch tones? That could give us some clues as well, because to adjective sound...

    Luthier Ruler

    I've done my own notched straight edges, it's easy, simple, cheap but takes a bit of work. 1) Buy an aluminium straight edge with about 2 to 4 mm thick, cut it to the size of your guitar's fingerboard (length wise). 2) With a sharpie or a thicker point marker, mark the fret's positions on one...
