    I'd post mine, but it's very far from stock ... so wouldn't generally be useful.

    Are you looking for a wiring diagram? Or is there something specific you're looking for in a pic?

    Nice! I saw a photo of the neon Cutlasses a while back ... was wondering when they'd come out.

    That Mariposa is stunning.

    So, a few things. There's no reason the electronics will need any kind of work. Pots can be cleaned if they get scratchy, etc., and that stuff is minor surgery.

    Did you get it wired correctly? Green to ground. Black/White together. Red to one side of the toggle. There shouldn't be any bleed between the pickups.

    It's possible an older pickup sounds...

    If it floats, it'll go out of tune when you bend a string. How much depends on the tension. But there's no magic there :)

    Just solder the black & white wires together (that's where the coils meet). Green goes to ground, red goes to the switch.

    Oh man- congrats! Great to hear about the pickups.

    These really do it for me. I'm trying really hard not to buy one.

    Sort of- there's a point where you'll be reintroducing different hum. Best bet is to set the guitar/pickguard up in playing position and adjust until you find the best spot on the trimmer. Crank up...

    Sounds promising- it will crackle a bit when it's powered up. If it persists, it's usually a sign that the battery isn't making good contact with the terminals. So either *gently* pry them back with...

    Spud- the SC picks up the same noise your pickups would (it's just a coil without a magnet under the hood), so it doesn't matter what frequency your power runs at ;)

    First off, you do have the option of replacing the preamp. You'd have to send the old one to MM and purchase a replacement. Just something to keep in mind.

    It's a buffer onboard, not a preamp....
