Would any of you guys who really understand all the electronics part of the way electric guitars work; Resistance and Taper (for the Volume Control), or Resistance and Capacitance (for the Tone Control) put together a brief summation of the parameter controls in WB Sort of a WB electronics Guide for Dummies for some of us who just never in all our years of playing learned about this stuff. If I needed or wanted changes I always paid for a tech to do the work for me and accepted their discretion as to what and why to do things to the pots when replacing pups. (been playing since I was 8 and ashamed to say at age 60 I know nothing about this stuff).
I know of course I can try changing things in WB myself and use my ears to discover the difference in settings but I am asking for information as to what to expect by changing these parameters. Of course I can look these things up the on the web. Links to further detailed info would be nice to be included in answer to this but I'm just looking for something brief that describes minor differences in the values we are given and what the symbols mean. It seems the Workbench HD Pilots Guide PDF assumes we know this stuff already by not including any more info than is written.
I can see that many of you understand this stuff based on;
leewit6 in this thread http://line6.com/sup...ues/#entry13405 speaks of the Tele models are .22, not .047, Strat models are .047, not .22. The Gretsch models are off correct specs too. I think there are some others not quite on as well. ReverendLove in this thread http://line6.com/sup...e-15#entry13193 speaks of changing the tone pot to 470k and the cap to 22n and set the pot to 8.5. for the workaround on the Strat 2/4 issue. stevekc gave some great resources on the Cap. Values thread but to one who is not up on this stuff the material in the links make my head spin.
Thanks in advance
