    Default Wolfgang 5-Way Switching Mod Demo

    I've been chatting about this guitar in other threads, and now its time to let you guys hear what it sounds like. Here's a clip of my freshly modded Wolfgang Standard showing off clean and dirty tones in all 7 possible pickup configurations.



    And here's the wiring diagram I drew up in case anybody is interested.

    That sounds fantastic!
    Nice job!
    What an awesome array of possibilities.
    Man, why even mess with putting a middle in, you've already got some great quack sounds in there.
    I couldn't help but notice your face light up, when you hit that OD dude

    BTW, excellent choppage there, and a very cute youngster

    I'd say you nailed it...now I want one just like it, LOL!
    Why behave in public...if you're livin' on a playground !

    Thanks man! And you nailed it, I'm 99% certain I won't bother with the middle pickup anymore. This is more aesthetically pleasing and I don't think the middle pup would be worth the effort.

    That sounds great. I have a similar mod, but a 6 way switch and I think the Wolfgang pickups sound great when split. Now if only I could get my playing up to your standard....

    Geez, that guitar sounds amazing with the mods you made!
    Fantastic 'in between' tones, and like you demonstrated and said, super versatile. Great playing examples as well.

    I can honestly say that I've thought to myself before "Man, I wish I had his chops!', and still do! But I also wish I had a son like yours! What a cutie, and hard to believe how big he's gotten. Time flies...

    Great video all around. Thanks for taking the time and also for sharing.

    Too bad you don't have any chops...Jesus dude, stop practicing, you make everyone else look bad.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    Jedi is like the Deraps of the Links, and in no way do I mean that to come across as a negative...

    I can't tell you how many times I've watched his Beat It solo clips, especially the wide stretch fret hand parts!

    I think I've said it in like three other threads/fb: no cover band singer can ever tell you to put the Van Halen guitar away again/ you created the Brian May version of a Wolfgang! Awesome mod
