ah ok.

So if I´d like to have a normal 3-way switch from DiMarzio, which one would I take out of the list? It says "3-way switch for Tele" (which would be EP1105), I´m not soure if that´s ok for a strat like guitar (such as a JEM), or if it has to be a Tele. So if I take one of these does it fit and is it the right one?

a telecaster 3 way switch wont fit in a strat or a jem

why do you want a 3 way?
you should get a 5 way if your getting Humbucker/Single/Humbucker(orsustainer)

no, I do have only 2 humbuckers in that guitar. And I won´t need the split of the HBs because it just sounds awful^^.

the model is strat like^^. Actually it´s called "M-Design", it´s a custom made guitar. Potis are on their way :).

hmm, but what you said before is, that you also read he´s using 1 meg pots and a 560pf cap. So now you say it was just an advice^^? Why?

Jeries also says he knows it´s a 1 meg pot.

Yes Patill i did read it a lot of time ago,but just 'cause i did read it it is just like an advice not the truth,it was just about this,not my own advice but it was "just like"an advice not more not the truth.

i mean,it is not the real truth it was an article i did read.

then there are my thoughts about this thing but i think these are not important.

did you try the 1 meg pots?do you like them?

I didn´t yet, they just arrived (after a half year of waiting, thanks, DiMarzio...). But I will put them in, soon. I´m very curious about how it will sound.

oh but there were on ebay......no?

also give atry to 1meg on tone ,i don't think steve uses them on volume,'cause of the rotation of the pot to obtain the clean from the distorted sound ,you know it.
di marzio at 8/9 (1meg)is already clean so it is not at volume in his guitar......my thought

anyway experiments
