Redwood Original - Pure Blood
- Jun 20, 2016
I Think It Would Look Better Without The Lampshade On Top Of It.So here's the plan: the Bernie is going to be a tribute to my favorite guitarist, Jeff Beck and the '54 LP he played on Blow By Blow.
Seymour Duncan wound the pickups Jeff Beck used on Blow By Blow.
I have a JB I put a roughcast A5 magnet in like Duncan uses in the Duncan Custom Shop for the JB. Makes it smoother and a little less sharp.
And I have a Duncan 59B that measures the same DCR as a PRS Dragon 1 neck.
The Dragon 1 neck has an Alnico 4 magnet like a 59 Gibson PAF. So that's what I put in the Duncan 59 and I'll use it as the neck pickup.
I'll split the neck pickup through a 1.1K resistor on one push/pull pot.
With another push/pull pot I'll have the option of series or parallel for the JB bridge pickup. Parallel gives a stronger sound than split, it's noiseless, but it sounds like two single coils both on.
It'll be cool and I'm working on it right now.
Here's what it'll look like. The parts are just laying on top of the guitar.
Looks Great Lew!
