  1. Position 2 is the same as position 1 and position 4 is the same as position 5. For what it's worth I ended up going back to the stock humbucker on the bridge, so I just have the one p-rail in the neck now. Wouldn't have a clue regarding three pickups sorry.
  2. I really like the pickups, plenty of tones to be had. I reversed the neck pickup (as shown in the picture), gives a nice single coil sound that just was possible with the stock pickups coil split. I find the pickups much more vintage sounding than the stock pickups, but it can still do metal/djent stuff with the bridge as a humbucker. Check out some reviews of the P-Rails on youtube, see if you like the sounds on offer.
  3. No issues for me, everything working fine. My wiring will be a little different to yours as I used the triple shot mounts so only had a hot and ground wire to solder to the pickup selector PCB, but that circuit diagram plus a Seymour Duncan wiring diagram should be enough to get you there.
  4. I've got some information in a thread I made about installing some P-Rails and Triple Shots that may be of use to you here: Here's also the wiring schematic for the JTV89f: Hope that helps.
  5. I've connected my JTV-69 and 89f like this before with no issues. You'll need a ground lift on the 1/4" jack output though, otherwise there'll be some interference.
  6. That's exactly what I plan on doing :). Can't imagine there will be any addition pull from the P-Rails compared to the original humbuckers in the JTV-89. Unless I'm missing something? Here's a quick diagram of what I'm planning:
  7. Going to be installing some Seymour Duncan P-Rails and the triple shot mounts to match in a week or so, just waiting on everything to get delivered. My current plan is to solder the neck ground to W1 and the hot to W4&5 on the switch board, and for the bridge, ground to W10 and hot to W6&7. I'd love to hear from someone who's tried this before just to make sure I'm heading in the right direction.
  8. Thanks Dave, I'll get around to testing them out soon :)
  9. Would you be willing to share your presets Dave? I'd love to hear them. See I love the playability of the JTV89f, but prefer the sound of the JTV69 mags. So it would be great to try it out.
  10. Recent 89F owner here and it seems to keep great tuning.
  11. Thanks for the links. Forgive my ignorance, but in the 1st and 3rd videos, could the same effect not also be obtained by using a floyd rose? See I've only just got a JTV-89f after having a JTV-69 for 6 months (currently in repair) and I'm finding I can do a lot more with the floyd rose than I could with the 69 trem. That said however I'm still very much a novice guitar player, and I'm certainly not well versed enough in tremolo usage to really make a judgment.
  12. Do you any examples of the advanced playing techniques? I'm interested in seeing what can be achieved with a 69 trem that you cannot on a floyd rose. Regarding the strings ringing out on the headstock, I used some velcro strips that really seem to do the trick. Sounds much better with the strings dampened at the headstock.
