Good information I've been an electrician for 25 years and never knew how my own guitar wiring worked, now I'm more versed in how guitar wiring in general works this is cool!??

Very Helpful

Not the most 'exciting' film...ha, but VERY informative. Actually I used the video instead of the wiring diagram, ha. Very nice, well done.
