DIY Tips - How to find the polarity of a guitar pickup coil.

It can also be a very handy technique for checking whether pickups are going to be "in phase" or "out of phase" with each other without having to test-fit them to the instrument. It is not hard to work out the wiring if you have a test-meter with voltage and resistance ranges (very handy - every musician should have one!). All you need to do is to follow this process: Wilkinson Guitar Parts. WVCR Chrome – £39.99 WVCSBCR Steel Block – £44.99 WVCR-LH Chrome – Left Hand – £39.99 WVCD Distressed – £49.99 WVC Since its introduction in 1954, this classic design is the most copied guitar vibrato bridge ever. The design is so simple and eminently usable it is a challenge to improve on it, but improve it we did!

Faithfully reproducing the size and weight of the original, this is a direct retro-fit for the "real thing" but with the added benefit of a push-in vibrato arm (rather than the troublesome original screw-in type). We also staggered the string holes in the sustain block allowing the strings to follow the natural intonation line of the saddles, keeping the strings' "angle of attack" over the saddle's intonation point more consistent, eliminating annoying string "hang-up" giving unrivalled tuning stability. Completing the assembly are the bent steel saddles built from the same gauge steel as the originals to retain the "vintage sparkle" that this bridge has become famous for.
