Yep. Was thinking about using one common pot for the toaster and blade with a separate pot for the Ferrite. I need to find some wiring diagrams for HSH type guitars to see how they're done.

The T-63 will be much easier. Three toasters, so I can use mostly stock T-60 electronics. Just gotta find a way to get all three pups selected at once while retaining the ability to use each separately.

You've got my email address, right? Send the pics.

Tony, I mean how are you running the buckers w/single-coil ferrite? Humbuckers usually take 500k ohm pots and single-coils take 250k.

Also, I ran into some really cool rare KISS photos. If you're interested, I can email them to you Very Happy

The more I play a bass with a super-ferrite, the more it seems like it's a humbucker to me. HUGE, FAT tone. Very hot. If you didn't know it was single-coil you'd think it was a bucker. I love 'em.

They are going on an import Raptor (Strat-clone) body so it's going to be a tight fit. It's currently routed for triple single coils so I'm trying to find someone locally that will let me borrow a router since. I've played a couple of T-15s and the Super Ferrite sounds kinda like a hot P-90.

I vote cool. My Frank N. Peavey project guitar has a toaster in the bridge position and a blade in the neck position. And a T-15 Super Ferrite nestled right between them.

I like that idea too. A lot. I can't think of one reason not to do it, actually.

Viktor, if you want treble, you don't want a toaster...so I've been told.
