I have puzzled for a long time how to organise workshops doing electronics mods. as the subject is a bit more complex than building a guitar.

As from end 2016 i will organise 3 hour (105 euro) and 4 hour (max. 140 euro) workshops doing simple guitar electronics modifications.

For the 4-hour workshops I will charge the last hour only as spent in 20 minute parts.

The purpose of these workshops is to present some simple mods, doable for the average guitarplayer. The idea of a workshop is that the pariticpants implement the mods themselves, i will sit back, relax and only interfere when things go wrong.

Switches and other hardware are not included, they will be charged extra.

Types of workshops

A. We do the mods on my kit (loaded pickguards or tele controlplates). Demo on the LABstrat

B. We do the mod on new or used kit provided by me or the participant (to be agreed) , participant takes the modified electronics home

C. We do the mod on participant's own guitar

All to be agreed in advance

Sequence of events:

At a workshop we will go through the following steps

1. Introduction and choice of mod to be practiced

2. Demoing the mod on my LABStrat (see electronics page)

3. Some theory on electonics - Ohms law, serial/parallel, in and out phase

4. The various switches we use

5. The use of the multimeter tool

6. Soldering excercise

7 Implement and test the mod of choice

The following modifications are possible at this stage:

Strat neck plus brug optie toevoegen (standard Strat doesnt have this) – één DPDT

Strat brug/mid pups in series (of andere combinaties), één DPDT

Strat meer series parallel schakelingen ( 2 and 3 pups) - twee DPDT:

Stratocaster Parallel uit phase – bridge/midpup – één DPDT

Stereo Strat (volume en toonregeling actief) – één DPDT          

Tapped single coil pups                - één SPDT

Treble Bleed Capacitor (Strat en Tele) -this is a quicky and can be done if time permits

Strat No-load switch ( solo switch) - één DPDT

Strat No-load switch– solo switch improved      - één DPDT en één SPDT

Telecaster in series: bridge / neck (that’s all you have) - één DPDT

Tele phase switching (same approach as strat mid ooph) - één DPDT

Tele No-load switch - solo - één DPDT

Please contact me for details and pricing variations.

DPDT stands for dualpole dual throw switch. This can be either a mini toggle switch or a pushpull pot which incorporates a DPDT switch.

Some of these require 3 hours, a few 4 hours. In general if you need a mod to be implemented on your own guitar probably 4 hours are required.; where a Strat is more work than a Tele.

I have bad experience with spammers and hackers, therefore i dont publish my email adres here. First contact works quite well via the form below. Shady characters (of which there are zillions on the net) will try the form as well, but can do little harm. Still you'd be surprised at the rubbish i sometimes get.
