    I actually thought of that, Ox, but my impression is that 3D prints look like utter crap, far worse than "made in Taiwan" free toys in cereal boxes did in 1970. If we didn't care about how good or...

    Golem now that I have an HS I'm just playing with it as is. At some point I'll definitely add the serial/parallel switch, and make hi-res photos and a youtube vid available.

    Yes and no... I want a Stingray 5 body. And I think the schematic I shared earlier gives me everything I want. I'll agree that the Game Changer was interesting though!

    Hey Golem,

    A local shop with a new Stingray5 HS for sale opened it up for me and the current production has a real, entire, single coil in there as a phantom. The inductor you describe may be for...

    OK: I went into a shop and they popped the pickguard of a brand new HS for me.

    PHANTOM COIL!

    That answers about all my questions.

    > I would think parallel for hum canceling... just a guess though.

    Hum is cancelled whether in serial or parallel.

    Also in cases like (Bridge1 parallel Bridge2) serial (Neck parallel Phantom).

    Hi Golem,

    coil so a phantom PU or inductor coil would be useful.

    Sure, and they used to work like you describe. Then the phantom coil...

    Thanks Golem!

    In fact I'm making the same supposition: that the phantom coil shown on the diagram may be something else that picks up the hum required to cancel it. In fact there are no hard and...
  13. Need to understand HS and HH alnico Stingray 5's electronics better, pls help!

    Dear MusicMen and MusicWomen:




    I'm a happy player and first owner of a 2002 Stingray 5 H. I'm about to upgrade to a new (or perhaps used but newish) HS or HH model.

    If the answers are no, yes, yes, yes, and yes, then this circuit would give a switch to turn an HH into an HS at your command. It also includes a serial/parallel switch that works in all five modes....

  18. Wiring Diagram for HH/HS switch and Serial/Parallel switch

    I'm leaning towards replacing my Ceramic SR5 H with an Alnico HS, but there aren't many HS's for sale and more HH's.

    So, I mocked up a circuit that would more or less duplicate an HS with an HH....

    Wiring HH as HS?

    I know StingRay 5 HS's always had a phantom single coil inside, to hum-cancel the single-coil settings.

    A salesman told me yesterday that the current HS's no longer need that. I assume the single...

    If you want white pickups, would they be likely to sell you white pickups in exchange for your...

    I've owned a bolt-on rosewood SR5 H (humbucker-only) since 2002.
