This is the place to look for circuits from Daveplaysbass, the gentleman who originally created all the single coil (non-K model) mods.

Here is the latest version of the Coil Mod document. From best I can tell this is Version 4 which was recently updated. There is a new mod in this one that uses a push-pull volume pot along with the 3 position coil switch. It gives both Single Coil options along with Series and Parallel.


As of 12/28/2017 here is an updated Preamp Mod version with a huge bloviation opamps for those who care. If nothing else this gave me a chance to collect multiple thoughts in one place. I have found over the years that explaining an engineering problem to someone else forces me to think through it better. This document drove me into some corners a little more than I had done previously. Also, after taking the engineering manager lobotomy six years ago, I think I am missing the gory details of circuit design. And I am hoping the lobotomy was not 100% successful -:).


Here is a detailed document of what I am calling the "Super Mod" which is Coil Mod 10.1 and Preamp mods with pictures, graphs, and charts.

^^^^ These are outstanding and include the exact wiring schematics I've been looking for the past week. Thank you.
