Ultimate-range tone knob

Posted on Wednesday, April 13, 2011 in Any Guitar, Les-Pauls and SGs, Stratocasters, Woz Mods and Upgrades

Ultimate-range tone knob Mod by Woz Giving you the same sound when all the way up, but able to roll down into much lower territory, this mod makes your tone knob much more useful. Tame jangles and explore a range of cozy old-woman-tone. Not only can you dial-in your own flavor of round and beepy, but you can turn it back and forth while playing and get wah-like and shimmering near-chorus effects. These mods intend to make every control something you can perform on, able to contribute attention-getting influence to solos on-the-fly.
You can do this to any guitar.

50% center-detent volume

Posted on Wednesday, April 13, 2011 in Any Guitar, Les-Pauls and SGs, Stratocasters, Woz Mods and Upgrades

50% center-detent volume Mod by Woz Feel a tiny “click” when your volume knob is at 50%. Turn your amp all the way up to your max lead volume and use your guitar’s volume knob to roll back to the same rhythm volume every time. The center-detent makes no noise and is subtle enough to cleanly roll past it when you need to. One-finger volume swells for example are smooth and don’t catch on it.

1M extra-loud volume

Posted on Wednesday, April 13, 2011 in Any Guitar, Les-Pauls and SGs, Stratocasters, Woz Mods and Upgrades

1M Extra-loud Volume Mod by WozUnder the knob is a little variable-resistor known as a Potentiometer or Pot. When the knob is all the way down your signal is shorted to ground. When it’s all the way up, the value of the pot is still between the signal and ground, taming it a bit. Basically, if you increase the value of this guy, you let more sound out. You will get a louder, hotter tone at maximum volume. While it will still say “10,” your guitar will go to “11.”
