Although it’s never usually seen by the player, I always like to make a neat and tidy job when I rewire a guitar.
Sometimes when I look inside a customer’s guitar, there’s a rat’s nest of tangled wires, which makes diagnosing faults and working on the instrument just a little more difficult.
This was a very nice and expensive Paul Reed Smith guitar with a gorgeous flamed-maple body.
It has a rare combination of 3 humbucking pickups. It was brought to me to have extra switching options installed – which I did using push-pull controls, meaning no change the visual appearance – and to install better sounding pickups.
It now has a huge 17 different tonal combinations, compared to the more usual 3 or 5.
