For the solo the first two pick ups out of phase.

For the solo, use the Neck & Middle pick-ups out of phase, so your pick-up on off switches should be 1=neck down, 2=middle down, 3=bridge up. That means both neck & middle pick-ups are ON while the neck pick-up is OFF.

As for the phase switches when they are in the down position the pick-ups are 'in phase', to make the neck & middle pick-ups 'out of phase' knock ONE of the neck or middle phase switches to the up position, it does'nt matter which one.

Make sure you only switch one of the pick ups out of phase because if you swich them both 'out of phase' they will then become 'in phase' again.

Confused ?.


I love you for your mind baby give me your body.

You see, that's so obviously wrong that it must be a WUM.

Plus, you know what a WUM is

Dear John,

I agree with an earlier poster. Put the guitar down. You are way out of your league.

Also: God gave us two ears (or eyes) and one mouth for a reason.

Stop asking so many stupid questions - and do a bit more reading/listening. You will learn more that way.

John
