These wiring diagrams are designed in an easy-to-follow pictorial style; no formal training is needed to perform these control upgrades. Just locate the diagram which most closely matches your guitar, control layout and operating preferences.
All upgrade suggestions are 100% reversible. None require any modification to the guitar; just minor wiring changes, and/or swapping controls with popular alternate parts, such as push-pull volume controls.
These various control modifications should be performed only by a person with soldering experience, and with the right tools. If you have never soldered, or are a beginner, your beautiful guitar is not the best place to learn! The possibility of causing new problems is real; you don't want to end up with a silent or buzzing guitar. So, before you start, ask for help from a qualified friend, and watch how it's done. Or, take your guitar to a tech, and help the local economy.
To maintain resale value, Stellartone strongly advises against "creative" customizations that involve drilling new holes for micro toggles or extra pots in any guitar, or disturbing factory solder joints in original-condition guitars built before 1966.
Note: Some models by Carvin®, Epiphone®, Ibanez®, PRS SE®, Schecter® and Squier® may be fitted with metric size pots which mount through an 8mm hole. If you are upgrading one of these metric guitars with a ToneStyler, click here for installation information.
