Will give a heads up to hear what you think of the sound. You cannot post Auctiva-hosted pictures! I have bought the powerhouse, when i got it, the poor old girl was missing her midboost circuit, so i got the 25db midboost circuit from my local fender dealer, i had a little bit of guesswork while wiring up the circuit seeming how the diagram that came with it was labelled wrong. It's hard to help with a problem if you can't define the problem. And if you are looking to sell the American Standards and the dummy coil. There are many ways to place these two components inside a Strat, and naturally the ideal location depends on a particular instrument and its routings. We have married the best of the old and new to create a fantastic guitar built for the serious player! Heres a thread about And heres a pic of mine: So if you own one, post some pics and lets hear about some mods! Mine's in Caramel Metallic with a rosewood fretboard. So, hey Doug, if you don't want that coil contact me here: ksepulchre at gmail dot com.
Wanna know what one sounds like in your guitar? I love my Powerhouse but I got it cheap because the dummy coil is open doesn't work. Single coil hum is a humming or buzzing sound coming from the amp usually quieter than the notes you are playing, which goes away when you turn the guitars volume down. The one I got is pristine, maybe like a 2 week old guitar.

Feedback is a high pitched ear piercing squeal, like from a microphone. I saw Douglyndz saying he was taking his out. It's a Mex strat, but the pickups poles are flat, not staggered and sharpe edged, not beveled.
A gold anodized pickguard in place of the stock white pearloid. Thanks for the Clapton wiring link, so is the circuit board in the P-House the exact same one as the Clapton strat? You may check the availability of older material by contacting Fender's Consumer Relations Department by phone at 480. A trio of dual-coil Ceramic pickups the same pickups used on the Jeff Beck Strat replacing the factory-installed Ultra Quiets. What I really like is that the controls make so much more sense to me. Feedback is a high pitched ear piercing squeal, like from a microphone. And if you are looking to sell the American Standards and the dummy coil.
Must be 2 weeks since I talked to her. Once you've activated your Auctiva account, you can save the media in your pictures folder and upload them within a photo managing account such as Photobucket, Imageshack and Picasa. Top middle has the continuation of the resistor wire from bottom tab. A Warmoth birdseye maple neck with a 22-fret ebony fingerboard and matching ebony headstock veneer. Probably not likely as I have a dedicated Knopfler strat, just wondered if anybody tried the Tex Specials in the P-House.

Wanna know what one sounds like in your guitar? Just take the magents out of a cheapo pickup. I just got my '06 back from my luthier after he worked his magic with the neck and changed out a few parts. Where does the time go!!!! Thanks again for the suggestion. But sometimes I miss the Knopfler 2 and 4 tones a bit. He plays country, rockabilly, and surf music in two bands, works regularly as a session musician for a local studio, and writes for several guitar mags.
If you're repairing or modifying your instrument or simply need some replacement part numbers, these lists and diagrams should help you get started. This list is by no means comprehensive, and documentation for other models will be posted as it becomes available. . Scary to think I can double the overdrive by snipping the two resisters, I'm more than happy with the Powerhouse 12 dB boost as is. Thats on the deluxe players.
The Fender Elite Strat served as a template for the Eric Clapton Stratocaster, a model that made its debut in 1988. Ah well, what am I missing without it? Full 25dB boost feature unlocked with the resistors clipped out. Last edited by on Fri Mar 18, 2011 12:51 am, edited 1 time in total. But you see what Im saying about his tone? Now that I think back , hers doesn't have the push button. Bottom middle has yellow wire from circuit board and white wire from dummy pickup. On my others I've tended to lower them quite a bit. Top of pot has the other end of the resistor, the other end of the capacitor and a ground wire to both the volume and the other tone tab.
Great for clean and distortion tones. So I will be glad to share what Ive learned about mine.

Dirk Wacker Dirk Wacker lives in Germany and has been addicted to all kinds of guitars since the age of 5. As far as I know Doctor Seb had made some changes on his own Powerhouse guitar. I don't know enough about exactly how the pickup height affect tone.
They appear to be equidistant between the strings and pickguard. I don't have a meter though I should probably just get one! These are two different animals with different causes and solutions. I was happy too, but then realized 12 db will always be there after the mod. If I were to get any aftermarket pickups. It's hard to help with a problem if you can't define the problem.
