  • I need help selecting a wiring harness for a build.

    I'm building a single hum single vol guitar. From my understanding the pickup connects to the POT which then connects to the input jack. This is all I know. What do I need to buy to make this happen? I'll be using a passive Duncan JB pickup in the bridge.

    Clarify for me - what do you have? Nothing for the project? What is it going into? Are you coil tapping?

    Theoretically you're simply going to need your jack, and whatever value pot you'd like to add to it. Probably a 500k. I like audio taper on pickups.

        Sorry Ben never responded on this, I've got a single hum single vol guitar. no coil tapping. I just need a pickup, vol, and wire to get the two connected and to the input jack. i don't know which wiring or pot to buy, other than a 500k pot.

          Probably just buy a premade kit if you don't want to mess with wiring. It is the easiest wiring job you could do, though, so its worth trying.

          Buy an audio taper pot - it will read A500k. Then some wire. Just grab a bit of 16 gauge or so at Harbor Freight. If you want to get fancy, allparts, reverb, guitarelectronics.com will have everything you need. It is spendy to buy it all piece by piece.

          I can check and see if I have the stuff you need.

                Unless your guitar is weird they're all the same.

                  Should I just order the Seymour Duncan then?

                    Yeah. There is no reason this will be hard.
