Serial operation and Phase Inverter explained

Posted by Jimmi Soldo on Friday, May 8, 2015,

A phase inversion is exactly that. We flip the phase of one pickup to achieve a cancellation effect.  Basically what that means is the + and - wires are switched on 1 pickup only. In the case of the Jimmy Page harness, it's the bridge pickup.  Every guitar pickup produces a waveform that can be viewed on an oscilloscope, and they look very much like waves in the ocean.  It is a matter of physics that any two waves equal and opposite will cancel each other out and equal "zero" again, just like...

Busting the MYTH of matched pots!!!!!!!!!!!

It seems that the mark of good electronics in a guitar is based on matching of equipment, while this holds true for many situations, we're gonna bust the myth today of matching potentiometers. 


MATCHED POTS are a benchmark signifying quality craftsmanship and care taken when making hand built guitar electronics, but why you; ask are we at the Guitar Garage claiming its a MYTH?!? Clearly this needs some explaining. 

“MATCHING ELECTRONICS MUST MAKE FOR...
