    Great looking DGT. Any chance you could post a photo of the control cavity (wiring, etc.) I bought a DGT last fall and it has an extra resistor on the bridge volume pot. I'm wondering if this is a pre-TCI version? Thanks!

    Ok, good feedback. I guess 9s will go on next week just for giggles. The pickups were raised to keep an element of that original power because, well, just because.

    That should be a treble bleed capacitor shunting two lugs. Here’s the schematic for detail.

    Congrats on this simply elegant addition, McCarty burst was and still my most favorite for a classic look
    which yours has in spades, enjoy it in good health Pete.

    To each their own as always, but I've always loved speed knobs. I think their larger O.D. makes them a bit easier to use and a bit more precise, especially when swelling. Cool, man! Looks like TCI is going viral!

    Both volume pots do have the bleed cap, but on my 2019 gold top, there is an extra resistor on the bridge volume pot as well. Asked Shawn about it and he said only that there is a new schematic being uploaded to the website.

    Yes re Bone Nut. I don't really know with regards to staying in tune with whammy use, I don't use it frequently, and when I do it is more of a Jeff Beck wiggle than an EVH Dive Bomb. ;) But so far so good, I have not noticed it coming out of tune at all.

    That news to me and very interesting. Seems like PRS was dabbling with the TCI concept ahead of production release of TCI. It wouldn’t surprise me if DGh was responsible for starting the TCI concept with Paul. Sounds like his sort of thing...consistency.

    You missed your calling in product marketing. “Sunshine on a Stick” makes me giggle every time I say it!

    Pete!

    A subtle yet sublime piece!

    Getting more elemental and conservative in your old age, are ya?? ;)

    Hi there, AaeCee! Great to hear from you!

    Yes, I have been through all the flashy colors (well, expect Bonnie Pink), got that out of my system. Now just doing the classic finishes. Charcoal and Yellow Tiger are the limits of how wild I will go on finishes these days. ;)

    Opened my WL DGT , it has a capacitor and resistor on each volume , looks like part of the treble bleed circuit. It is a 2019 , so pre-TCI. Well get this TCI thing sorted out someday

    It just looks like a treble bleed variant, and it also has the 2 resistors for the coil split on the tone pot

    Wonder what the TCI DGT pickups do differently from the original DGTs?
